Roy was an artist, nature lover, reader, and lifelong student of history. He truly enjoyed the life that was given to him. He took a lot of pleasure in painting portraits, wood carving, spending time in nature, and having breakfast with his brothers. He was a kind and special man much loved by family and friends. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and brother.

He was a member of St. Vincent de Paul Church in Elyria for almost 60 years and was an usher at Sunday Mass. His beautiful portraits of pastors and popes hang in the Social Hall at St. Vincent.
