|Let the memory of Roy be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Roy Fletcher - grandfather, father, son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin, and friend. Roy was born on February 14, 1959, and passed away on June 28, 2014. He left us too early at the age of 55 after a sudden illness.
Even though Roy didn't have an abundance materially, he generously gave of his time and attention to help his famly and others, especially those in his fellowship. Although he was a lost soul for many years, he found his true purpose in life his last few years by helping others and he found joy in living each day.
We will remember him forever.
