Worcester - Firefighter Christopher J. Roy, 36, a Worcester Firefighter assigned to Webster Square Station Ladder 4, died on Sunday, December 9th from injures that he sustained while fighting a fire in the early morning hours at 7 Lowell Street.

Firefighter Roy attended Saint Peter Marian Central Catholic High School through his junior year and then graduated from Burncoat High School.

Chris worked for many years with Consigli Construction before he was appointed as a Firefighter for the City of Worcester in 2016. Firefighter Roy was stationed at the Webster Square Fire Station on Ladder 4.

Chris was a kind, caring and compassionate friend who was the pillar of his family.

He had a passion for hunting and fishing, Chris recently purchased a new ATV and was looking forward to using it while on his hunting excursions.

Firefighter Roy loved to cook, especially for his fellow Firefighters at the Webster Square Station. Traveling was always a cherished time with Chris, he could often be found taking trips to Old Orchard Beach with his family or visiting Clearwater, FL, however he was the happiest on trips when he was in Myrtle Beach with his daughter, Ava.
