Roy was a true American hero. He could have came home and felt sorry for himself and did nothing. But he lived life as full as possible much more full then those without his injuries.
No doubt exists that he is now healed and well. If most of us had half the will and heart Roy had the world would be a better place.
His favorite cars were the old big block Mopars. A soldier then and a soldier now just welcomed home as he should be. Thanks to his family for sharing him with all who knew him

Roy made an indelible impact upon us all. He was a humble man, a man of character and integrity. He loved His Lord and Savior, loved his family and loved this Nation that he sacrificed so greatly for. To you I will ever be grateful for knowing you as a friend and Brother in Christ.

2 Timothy 4:7-8

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.

Revelation 21:4

And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes, there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying, there shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.

Godspeed Roy
