Dear Helen - I am so sorry for your loss. Prayers to you and your family for strength and healing. He was such a sweet man and I have so many memories of him coming to the gallery to visit. I also love that he tried to convince me to name our third son after him and would alsways ask me, "how's Roy Henry Kinkade doing?" :) I'm in california now but you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

He will be forever missed. RIP Roy Joe!
Kathy Grossman, February 11, 2022 I’m so sorry to hear of Roy’s passing. I have enjoyed attending church with he and Helen for the last 18 years. I have many fond memories of Roy. I am very thankful that he loved taking photos. As a single mom I don’t have a lot of pictures of myself with my kids because I was always the one taking the picture, but thanks to Roy I have several pictures from church events over the years. I cherish those pictures, There are several Halloween/fall festivals of my kids dressed up, there’s a very special picture with John Foster on his last Sunday at at FBC. He even took some pictures of my mom on Ball Club trips. It was so kind of him to take the photos, print them and give them away to everyone. He was always in such a good mood, with a big smile and friendly handshake. I have several other fond memories. He will be missed by my kids and I. Jessica Johnson, February 10, 2022 Mr Blevins you will always be in my heart and prayers. You have been a huge inspiration through my toughest times. I appreciate you kindness and thoughtfulness to my children and I. You will be missed and know one day we will meet again.
