Roy Melton OBar October 23, 1929 - October 17, 2013 Roy was born in Stratford, Oklahoma to William and Martha OBar. He is survived by his wife of 56 years Mildred Obar; daughter Teri Jones, daughter Karen Alexander; his grandchildren Brittny, Jerrod, Katie, Brandon; his great grandchildren Danika and Dillon. Roy was an incredible husband, father, grandfather and a business man at heart. He loved making deals. At 6'4 he was hard to miss when he came into the room. Roy attended Redlands High School, graduated in 1947 and went on to join the Coast Guard. He became a CHP for LA/ San Bernadino County, went to work for Bakersfield Ready Mix and became a Realtor at Karpe Realty. He was a partner in multiple businesses: The One Hour Express, Tehachapi Mini Storage, Josco Const., and Vacusweep. Roy met his loving wife Millie at the local bowling alley in Redlands, CA where he bowled a "300" game. It took him a couple attempts to get her to agree to a date, and they have been happily married for 56 years. He will be truly missed by all. He is at peace now and resting in God's hands. The family would like to extend our deepest thanks to Divine Mercy-owner Susan and caregivers Naty, MaryBeth and special thanks to Junior for making Roy's last days comfortable.
