Roy was a lifelong fisherman; he spent many years hunting, fishing, mushroom picking, and driving the backroads. Roy retired after working for union 335.
Roy’s wishes were to be cremated with no wake. He wanted everyone to remember his life, not his death. He said that someday he will see us all again and you can have your say then. He is now with his father, mother, and sisters.
