What a character , I enjoyed his stories from the Navy, and then living out as a Idaho rancher. He had already forgotten more than I will ever know. He sounded gruff but I really knew better.
He gave me advice, made me laugh and put up with all his neighbors.
Roy and Charlene were like siblings to me, I admired them as friends, neighbors and Roy a fellow veteran., I salute him. Becky , you are not forgotten. 🇺🇸
