Roy enjoyed woodworking and gardening; his yard was his pride and joy. He loved being out in his garage and loved and respected horses. When he and Emma Lou would travel out West to visit their children, he would travel a different portion of the Lewis and Clark trail. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
