Dear Brian and Barry, My sincere sympathies to both of you on the loss of your father, Roy. My dad had told me this weekend and I just wanted to let you know that your dad was such a dear man to talk with after church services at Redford and both my parents admired him so very much. He often would call my dad over the last few years to check-in and I know how much my father appreciated those calls. I am sure this is a very difficult time having only lost your mom a few years ago as well. A true testiment to both of your parents is how well each of you have grown up as exceptional individuals. May you feel strength, peace and happiness in the memories you have of your dad. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Many blessings!
Dear Barry and Brian,
My condolences on the loss of your father. I got to meet you father at an SAR meeting. He was not only your father but a hero to me. By two counts he was of the Greatest Generation and a member Mountain 10th. History has noted their exploits in Northern Italy. It was my extreme pleasure and honor to meet and talk with your dad. I will always remember it. I'm sure you will remember much of what you shared with your father, especially you journey finding your patriot ancestor. Remember the good times.
Barry and Brian, I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your father. I will miss talking to Mr. Puckett and planning the 10th Mountain Division's annual event at Grand Hotel.
I worked with Roy at Bishop Borgess High School for 20 years in the Business Dept. and also at Henry Ford Community College. We've kept in touch over the years and I always enjoyed "catching up" whenever we got together for lunch. He was a very kind and sincere man. The world was a better place because of Roy. God bless him.

Barry and Brian, my sympathies and condolences are with you, your father was a very kind and gentle man, and he will be missed. However, he will also be treasured and remembered. My memories include our discussions about our favorite sports team, the Detroit Tigers, how the managers like Anderson, Trammell and Leyland were performing, who should stay and who should be traded, and just how the Tigers were doing day to day. Mr. Puckett also liked to inquire how I was doing when calling for Barry, he was genuinely concerned. Go in Peace.
