After graduating with honors from Auburn University in 1974, Roy embarked on a remarkable career that would span 35 years, literally taking him around the world, building large-scale projects for many U.S. Government agencies and private sector clients. Combining a natural talent with his extraordinary work ethic, he excelled in his profession and was widely known for bringing in his projects ahead of schedule and under budget.

He will also be lovingly remembered by his grandchildren; Chet and Jayme’s daughters Morgan, Emily, Grace, and Chuck and Misty’s sons Carter and Carson. Roy was a loving husband and father, a devoted brother and son, and loyal friend. Throughout his life, his strong faith guided him and served to make him the remarkable man that he was, leaving his mark on all who met him. He will be missed by so many, who may take comfort in knowing that he is at peace with his Heavenly Father.
