Roy F. Prescott, 48, of Rocky Hill, went to meet his Savior Jesus face to face on Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012. Because Roy believed Jesus' words when He said: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved," those Roy left behind can rest assured that Roy is safe in the arms of Jesus.
