Roy worked for Hitachi for 17 years and also Elcen Metals for many
years before he retired. He loved helping people throughout his life. Roy was very active with his church
and took pride in assisting with the maintenance of the facility. His favorite project was ?Roy?s Barn?,
which he spent countless hours working on. It was there that Roy enjoyed working on little projects
for the home or church. If he didn?t have the tool to fix it, he just made one instead. He was affectionately

during family gatherings. He will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved him.
