Memorial Tributes
This tribute was added by Pat & EL Smoogen on 29th January 2017

"E.L. and Roy had mutual respect for each other's woodworking skill and would share information about ongoing projects. A friendly neighbor, Roy would spend driveway time with us discussing life events. We fondly remember the nights we spent playing cards or dominoes."

"Happy Birthday in Heaven Roy!  Being 86 isn't bad. Move slower and stiffer!  Hope you are celebrating with family and all of our classmates there!  Especially BB and Eddie!  Miss you and lasting love for classmate and friend!"

"We are very grateful for the opportunity to share this wonderful tribute to Roy. This was truly a great experience -- we felt like we were present during the various events in memory of the great and kind person who we loved so much. We had a number of occasions to visit with Roy and our cousin Annie during several George family reunions over the past several years. We were always impressed with Roy's warmth and his genuine caring about everyone he met. We will always treasure our memories of the past and just wanted you, Annie, Lori, and Ted along with many family and friends that we have all of you in our prayers.
Love, John and Lorraine Meredith"

"I didn't know Roy as well as most of you, definitely my loss.  We mostly saw him at family parties.  What I remember most about Roy, besides his always smiling face, is the time he made me feel welcome at a family dinner. I had made sure my kids were feed and taken care of, making me one of the last to get my plate of food, I couldn't find a place to sit so I went on the hunt.  When Roy saw my plate in hand and the look of searching on my face he said "come sit here with us Chris", and he made room for me at the table.  I know it seems like such a small thing, but isn't it the small things in life that really matter!  Roy noticed people and made them feel welcome.  He will be truly missed.
Lori, thank you for giving us a little bit of a glimpse at the man and father that he was."

"Roy was not just my only brother-in-law, but had been a dear friend as well. He was always helpful and supportive when needed and I have many memories of our motor home travels with Annie and him... and Barbara Striesand, of course! Such a consummate gentleman, loving friend and family man. I will miss him."

"My memories of this good, sweet person go back to our high school days, now over 68 years.  My sadness grows for those who knew him and for his family.  He will be remembered as a great friend, always helpful.  He will be missed by many.  I hope Annie knows that all of us from BSHS will keep him and his family in our thoughts and prayers."

"What a wonderful and appropriate tribute to a very special man. Lori, your memories and stories were especially heartwarming. You captured the Roy that we knew in all of your great stories. As other speakers said, "HE WAS ALWAYS WILLING TO LEND A HELPING HAND". He was such a loving man; so well liked by every person he met.  Shaula and I have grieved over his passing and hope to see Annie soon to share our fond memories too. Our love and prayers go out to you and the whole family. We especially pray for Teds rapid recovery.
Lots of love and he will be missed.
Shaula and Jim Nickel"
