Roy was born on October 3rd, 1929 in Kincaid Saskatchewan and came to B.C. in the late 1940’s, settling in Terrace with his new bride, Norah, in 1951. Roy will be remembered for his accomplishments in the curling rink and for his service to community through Minor Baseball, Terrace Curling Club, the JC’s and the Elks. Roy enjoyed the friendship and support of many Terrace residents, both short term and oldtimers.
Roy’s family would like to extend thanks to those friends who helped him especially in recent years due to his declining health. Sincerest thanks are also extended to the staff of Mills Hospital, McConnell Estates and especially Terraceview for the loving care provided to him in his final months.
