Roy was born September 9, 1940 and was raised in Covington, TN, where he still was very close with his high school classmates. Kellogg’s employed him for over 30 years and he also served in the United States Air Force. Roy attended church in Covington growing up, Colonial Hills Church many years and then Compel Church in Southaven. After his health declined, you could always find him watching TV preachers on Sundays, and The Gaithers anytime they were on. His grandchildren were the light of his life. He enjoyed eating out with Brenna and Barrett being at their house every day to help him with projects. Roy loved his niece, Kelly and was so glad when she moved nearby. He was also proud of his musician nephew, Adam. His favorite activities as many of you will remember were traveling, eating a good meal, and tinkering with his antique cars. Memberships to the AACA, Studebaker Club and Sugar Ditch Club were very important to him because these clubs allowed him to be with friends. Roy leaves his wife, Cheryl; daughter, Carra and son-in-law, Greg; grandchildren, Brenna & Barrett and great-granddaughter, Presley Kate. He also leaves a sister-in-law, Jill & husband Mark, sister-in-law, Nat Adams; one niece, Kelly Gowdy and a nephew, Adam Gowdy and wife, Kyndle.
