Roy Dean McKinney Jr. Obituary
The man who was loved by many for his gentle way, good humor and genuine nature died on January 30, 2018 in Santa Monica California. Roy was husband to Judith and father to Dean ( Anne ) and Paul ( Suzanne ) Mckinney. Born in Lubbock Texas March 17, 1929 Roy loved shamrocks and collected them. During his teen years he worked at the local airstrip as a general helper. The owner offered to teach Roy to fly and at 16 he surprised his parents by climbing into a plane and taking his first solo flight. He maintained his pilot license for many years and tended to terrify his family with short trips to Santa Catalina Island. Roy attended Uni High in West Los Angeles and he served in the Navy during the Korean War upon the aircraft carrier the USS Essex. In 1955 Roy began his long association with State Farm Insurance. He remained an Agent until the day he died and was proud of his legacy with the company. Roy was a long time member of Bel Air Country Club and served as President of the club in 1992.
