Roy was a kind and generous man. A gentle giant that would give you anything he had if he thought you needed it. Roy was an avid CB’er back in the day and so many people knew him by his CB handle “Beanbag”. He loved people (especially the girls) and he loved the Fulton Oysterfest. He loved dancing and beer. He grew up dancing at “Lillian’s Danceland” and was the best “two-step” partner around.
