Roy’s early childhood began in Port Arthur, Texas.

He was a high school graduate of Abraham Lincoln High School class of 1956.

Roy as a young adult served in the United States Army, as a Parachutist and Crewman.

Roy and Mable were married in 1966 and together created a beautiful legacy together as longtime residents of Port Arthur, Texas for over 56+ years.

Roy loved the Lord, and was baptized at an early age, and served the role as a Deacon in the church.

He was a member of the Florida Avenue Baptist Church, and then later the Greater Macedonia Baptist Church, for many years.

He was employed at Ameripol Synopol Refinery, of Port Neches, Texas, in 1969, for 30 ½ years until he retired in 2000.

Roy lived a blessed life and would help anyone who wanted to help themselves.

He always had a smile to pass on, and sense of humor. He was a hard worker, and physically and mentally strong for his family and an awesome provider.
