Roy will be remembered for the lasting impression he left on so many people's lives. He was a man of unique and admirable character, having remarkable dedication to his family and his friends. He carried with him a special presence, a man of leadership, integrity and courage easily recognized by those around him. He had a passion for his life, equaled only by his passion for his wife and two daughters. He touched the lives of many. To the people he met, Roy was a stranger only once. Roy was a well known and respected member of the firefighting community, serving in many capacities including Deputy Chief of the Polk City Fire Department. Roy was also a familiar face on the Iowa State campus, working in the Environmental Health department since his graduation from Iowa State in 1998. Roy's hobbies were many. Amongst his favorites was enjoying the tranquility of cold water trout streams in NE Iowa. Another favorite was making people laugh. Roy always treasured a good joke, especially one that carried an element of surprise. Roy also enjoyed hunting, camping, fishing, woodworking, carpentry, and being a handy man in general.
