Roy was a good judge, horseman,and cowboy. I meet Roy in 1970, I was a young trainer. He was always fair and I respected him. HE WAS A TRUE COWBOY. My prayers go out to his family, I know he is truly missed.
Sweet Alene, it doesn't seem possible that it was 25 years since I watched you marry your sweetheart. My heart is breaking for you. Sending you love and hugs. Kate Moore
Roy was a childhood hero of mind and a good friend of my Dad. Close friends will remember his nickname Onion and his roping horse Mighty Mouse. A cowboy's cowboy.
It was a very sad day to hear about Uncle Roy's death. He was great story teller about horses and rodeos He was great uncle and friend. May God bless him and his family. With Love and Respect Mike and Sheila Hill
Roy was a friend of my father, Lanham Riley. As a youngster I remember seeing Roy at horse shows. He always had a good story to share as did my dad. He was a gentleman and fine horseman and will be missed.
Roy was one of the really good guys. He honestly will be missed.
Roy was a good guy, who could teach you more in a story than a lot of people could in a week. He will be missed among all of us who knew him.
I always enjoyed showing to Roy. I considered him a true horseman. I had a friend up here that wanted a youth horse and I found them a big palomino mare that he had. She was just what he said she was. They loved her. What a nice guy.
I remember Roy as a young man going up in the horse world. I always had great respect for him and his advice.
One of the really good horsemen and gentlemen I have admired.
RIP my friend. Frank Merrill
I meet Roy in 1970 , I was a young trainer. Roy was a good judge, trainer and cowboy that I respected. He was always good and fair to me. My thoughts and prayers to Roy's Family.
As a youngster growing up neighbors to the Savage family south of Chico I remember Roy and the rest of his family. They were good friends of ours and we visited in each others homes many times. Roy was a little older than me and I always admired him especially his ability as a rodeo performer. Althought I have not had the opportunity to see him for many years i Ihave many fond memories. My prayers go out for God's comfort for all the family.
