Roy worked as a Truck driver all his life starting at age 15, working long haul for many years while living in Edmonton Alberta. While at one of his jobs he met a bookkeeper named Lorraine who became his wife in 1959. They moved to Kamloops, BC in 1973 with 4 children. He then started working for Arrow Transport until 2002 retiring early to be with Lorraine as her health was failing due to severe Rheumatoid Arthritis, she passed on January 14, 2003.
Roy loved his garage that was full of his woodworking tools making many pieces of furniture for his home. He enjoyed fishing, camping and having a large garden. He always had the same pose when he had his picture taken, one hand on the side of his head, the other on his hip. He was a big tease and during many family reunions he would dance around the room with a big turkey drumstick in his hand teasing people and having a great time. He had a great sense of humor! Roy met Louise in 2008, they traveled a lot, enjoyed their garden and just be together. Louise loved him dearly as he her.
No service by his request.
