C.L. ROY C.L. ROY C.L. Roy, loving husband, devoted father, and proud grandfather passed away on August 8, 2018, at the age of 80. C.L. was born in DeWitt, Arkansas on March 2, 1938. He graduated as valedictorian from DeWitt High School and attended college at the University of Arkansas. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering and was a member of Tau Beta Pi (Engineering Honor Society) and Theta Tau Fraternity. After graduation, he accepted an engineering position in Wrightsville Beach, N.C., where he would meet his soon to be wife of 53 years, Anne Roy. While in North Carolina, C.L. became a Freemason at St. John's Lodge No.1 AF & AM in Wilmington and achieved the rank of Master Mason after 50+ years of active membership. C.L. and Anne married in 1965 and moved to Houston, TX just 3 years later. They settled in the North Shore area, where they would live for 36 years and raise their family. C.L. began his career with Merichem Chemical Company in 1968 as a staff engineer and retired in 2003 as President of Merisol USA. C.L. and Anne spent their retirement years as residents of Bellville, TX and enjoyed their getaway spot on Lake Travis, in the Austin, TX area, as often as possible. C.L.'s desire to serve his community was paramount throughout his life with membership in numerous organizations such as: - North Shore Rotary Club (President 1978 -1979) - North Channel Area Chamber of Commerce (President 1983, Paul Harris Fellow Award 1982) - East Harris County Manufacturers Association (Chairman 1987-1988) - San Jacinto College Foundation, Board of Directors - First State Bank & Trust, Board of Directors - Harris County Water District No. 36, Board of Directors - North Channel Emergency Medical Service (President 1984-1985, 1988) - Bellville Lion's Club (Lion of the Year 2009-2010) - Bellville Economic Development Corporation, Board of Directors C.L. always looked forward to lunches with Bellville's ROMEOs (Retired Old Men Eating Out) group; as well as golf and travel. He was an avid reader of books about History, Art, and Science. He kept his dry wit sharp with a small library of joke books which he would mark and categorize so that he was sure to get just the right joke or pun for every occasion. C.L. led by his actions and deeds; seldom accused of being overly verbose. His life will be remembered by all as one built on a foundation of integrity, fairness and service to others. C.L. is survived by his wife Anne; his daughter, Karla Lyde, and her husband, Glen Lyde; his son, Brett Roy and his wife, Stacey Roy; his grandchildren Dane Roy and Madison Lyde. C.L. is preceded in death by his parents Louis and Ida Belle Knowlton, and sister, Nye Meiner. The family would like to extend special appreciation to the caregivers that gave so much to C.L.'s comfort during his illness. Those included are Sunday Kennedy, Sonya Cerda, Susie Lindberg, Mary Juarez, Tammy Reese and the College Station Hospice organization.
