To Roy’s family, I am so sorry for your loss. I knew Roy from school years at Ahoskie High School, his brother Danny, was in my class. Roy was a friendly person, loved seeing him and talking. May God grant you comfort and peace in the days ahead. Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Remember the cookouts on a Saturday nights after work at the store he owned 50% of in middle of Powellsville. He loved to have cookouts! He cooked the best steaks using beer. A good brother never had arguments! Rest In Peace!
