Rod and Venita
am so sorry for your loss, Roy was such a kind and loving man. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with him and I am sad to see
him gone. His smile and laugh could light up a room! Take care Roy and may you be at peace.
Cindy & Family: You have my deepest sympathy. I remember the corn on the fireplace
& when he took me in the barn to see the cows. I loved it. I really didn't know that he played the radio to the cows.
That was really cool. He will be missed by all. Sorry I couldn't be there. I just can't handle funerals. Once again
I will miss him as you and your family will too. I also ran into him at Walmart.
With Love Always:
Sorry to hear of Roy's passing. He was
a great person to work with at the Farm Service Agency during his time farming. I am sorry I missed his services.

I am so sorry for your
loss of a wonderful man. I enjoyed all the times I spent
at the farm. The cows, pigs, kittens, the fun during
the fireworks and of course the yummy ice cream. Sorry I wasn't at the funeral as I was out of town.
I know Leon is in a better place now and smiling down at us all. My hugs to you all.
