He was a great husband, dad, mentor and fisherman and is fondly remembered as "The Old Beachcomber". He created many wonderful memories for his family for the times he spent with them fishing the surf at Grand Isle catching speckled trout. He inspired all of his children to work hard and achieve their goals but let each child plot their own path. Roy was a parishioner of St. Thomas More Catholic Church for over 55 years and served the church preparing and serving food at the Bishop Ott Shelter. Upon retirement Roy also volunteered his time to his community by providing construction assistance for Habitat for Humanity.

The family wishes to extend their sincere thanks and appreciation to the staffs of Home Instead, Audubon Hospice, and all the caregivers who assisted our dad and family.
