So sorry for your loss. Roy and I went to school together from the 5th grade through high school graduation from Jenkins in 1961. He was my first "boyfriend" in grammar school as well as being neighbors in Fairway Oaks in later years. We did not keep in touch over the years but I remember him always being very nice. I know he will be missed by his family and friends. Will keep you all in my prayers.

I am so sorry to read about Roy's death. I have so many great memories of Roy and the Potter family and the times shared at Granny Potter's dinner table. Roy, Al and Jimmy would howl with laughter telling the same old stories over and over. I miss those times. I will remember Roy in my prayers. Miriam Potter and Patty Kandel
