Roy Princeton Koeing Obituary
Roy was a strong man who stood tall. He put all that he had into any job that he was given always with honesty, integrity, loyalty and diligence.
At heart, Roy was a family man. This is where his love and joy thrived. Roy was much loved as a brother, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, husband and friend. As his family grew and changed over the years, he was, and remained a haven of support and comfort for each of his children even when they were miles apart. Being a grandparent to an ever-increasing number of wonderful children, many who have grown into fine adults, was so much fun for Roy in so many ways and brought him joy, energy, laughter and light.
The door was always open. The greeting was a smile, a big strong hug and the smell of a delicious meal on the stove.
In a nutshell, Roy was a great guy whose booming voice and big ol' hugs are so missed and will be always remembered. He lived a rich 84 years.
"He had a great ride".
