Roy was born in Ocean Falls, B.C. April 23, 1923. He served in the RCAF at the Boundary Bay flight training center as a mechanic during WW2. A skilled carpenter by trade (member of Carpenters Union 452), he participated in numerous building construction projects in the lower mainland. He constructed his own homes in Naniamo & Port Coquitlam & enjoyed helping relatives constuct or remodel their homes (he was the boss.) Roy’s sense of humour never left him & will not be forgotten by those close to him. He was very fond of all his grand & great grandchildren. They will miss their grandfather. An avid golfer, Roy could be found at the Cultus Lake golf course on the mornings of Monday, Wednesday & Friday with Margaret and other friends from Crown Point Villas. He also enjoyed golfing with Norm, Don, Ken, Jason, Todd and Matt.
