I first met Roy around 1975 at West Capital Raceway. Roy's cars were always fast and good looking. Roy was a generous man, when the West Capital Raceway Alumni Association had our vintage race at the track in Roseville, Roy furnished a car for our special guest Parnelli Jones to use for the week. Roy provided the Hall of Fame hats for our organization. I will forever treasure his friendship.

Roy will be greatly missed by the Wilhite family. He always had a kind word to say and a smile on his face. One thing about cousin Roy is that he never forgot where he came from.
