A bit of info on the man Roy was.
Roy has five young children Aaliyah age 12, Roy Jr age 9, and twins Melody and Amara age 7 and Mari age 13. Roy had just graduated from barber college in November of 2012, his life long dream. While in barber school Roy would often frequent the local stores looking for customers to bring home, not for the money but really for experience. His outgoing personality made this very easy as Roy would bring home almost anyone at any time of the day. He was very eager to become a master barber and wanted to practice on anyone with a head of hair. Random people would come knocking at the door at all hours of the day asking "is Roy home? I need a cut." Roy was such a loving and involved father that he coached on his childrens sports teams. He was a loving, hands on and doting father always eager to be involved in every aspect of their lives. Roy often caught a little slack because he made his daughters and nieces homemade hair bows and boy could he make those better than any crafty woman I know. He didn't care what anybody had to say about that, his girls had to have matching bows for all their outfits.
Sunday Roy and his wife were in a horrible accident, by the grace of God Rosie only had a broken finger but Roy was not so lucky. He was and lost his right arm. Once at the hospital we were informed things weren't looking too great. He had punctured both lungs, broken his right leg in two places and his brain was swelling. Things sadly have gotten worse and his brain has begun to bleed so much that it has caused too much damage that at this point the family has decided it is time to let him be with the Lord.
