He married his first wife, Fran Casey in 1952 and had his son, Ashley and his daughter, Teresa. In 1970, he married Jeanette Hoagland. They moved to Oregon in 1990 after his early retirement from teaching.
Roy enjoyed travel and was a lover and admirer of all types of art. He was known for the unique tables that he made.
He is survived by his wife, Jeanette; son: Ashley Nevins; daughter: Teresa Shackelford; 4 grandchildren: Ivy Chincarini, Nicole Nevins, & Hope and Anna Shackelford; sister: Nadine Padilla; and many wonderful nieces and nephews.
At Roy's request, there will be no services and the family suggests that in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be made to Willamette Valley Hospice, 1015 3rd St. NW, Salem, OR 97304.
