Roy was born in Holbeach Hospital on 14 October 1949. He lived on a small holding at Weston Hills with his parents Brenda Noreen and Joseph Roy.

Roy attended the Weston Hills Primary school, followed by the Gleed Boys School in Spalding. He started working for Perkins Engines as an apprentice in 1965, and worked there until 31 January 2003 when he took early retirement to look after his mother.

Roy met Janice (Hales) in 1963 when they were 13 years of age. They were married on 28 May 1977. Roy and Janice had two children, Andrew Roy (born on 8 October 1982) and Amanda Jayne (born on 28 March 1985).

Chantal joined the family as Roy’s Daughter in Law, when she married Andrew on 7 June 2013.

Roy loved his grandchildren, Joseph Andrew Roy (born on 8 December 2014) and Callie Louise (born on 30 March 2017). He also loved spending time with Milo, the family dog.

Roy enjoyed a number of things including holidays abroad, caravanning at Skegness, fishing, horse racing, a number of sports (viewing not playing), cooking, gardening, swimming and films. He also enjoyed watching air displays and later became a member of the Lincolnshire Lancaster Association.

Roy’s Health began to deteriorate in October 2019. He celebrated his 70th birthday on 14 October 2019.

Roy celebrated his last Christmas and New Year with his loved ones at home.

Shortly after, he was moved to Gosberton House Care Home where he spent his final days, before passing away peacefully on 29 April 2020.

Roy was much loved and will be missed by many.

Due to current restrictions a private cremation funeral is being held at 11am on 29 May 2020. Family and friends are welcome to watch a webcast of the service. Please contact us if you wish to do so.
