Roy assumed ownership in 1979. In his community, he was known as "The Typewriter Man." He could "fix" most anything; and if he couldn't, he was always willing to "direct you" on how to do it.
One of his favorite things was to sit on the river bank fishing for hours. It was his peaceful time for reflection. He was a very loving daddy and caring friend to all. He held his family very close to is heart, no matter the distance. He would do anything for anyone in need. He had a very big heart.
