Roy was great to work with in my years in the line department at GSU. I enjoyed our times together duck hunting, tournament archery and scuba diving. Roy was so competitive, at anything from distance throwing, archery and even foot racing a certain distance against a line truck. No matter his age, he was always young at heart. It breaks my heart to learn of his passing. Anyone that ever met Roy, would not forget him. My condolences to Steve and Cheryl. Roy may your soul roam the Heavens in search of adventure!!!!
