Roy was a parishioner of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church. He proudly served his country as a corporal in the U.S. Army during the Korean War and also enjoyed some of that time playing football for the Army. He loved his family and bragging about his great-grandson, Jackson. He loved the outdoors; he enjoyed hunting and gardening, and with his green thumb, he fed lots of people.
The family would like to thank Dr. Jules Dupont, Hospice of South Louisiana and Bayou Home Care.
