Roy was employed for many years as an over the road truck driver and spent several years working at Zolman Tire and Auto. He enjoyed fishing, and was an avid football fan of both Notre Dame and the Indianapolis Colts.
Roy enjoyed feeding his family and friends at his famous cookouts, and he will be remembered fondly by those who knew him as a kind hearted and caring soul who would go above and beyond to lend an ear to those in need. Most of all, his greatest joy in life was being “Pawpaw” to his grandkids. He took great joy in spending time with them, and the grandkids always knew a popsicle could be found in Pawpaw’s freezer.
