Our condolences to Beverly and all Uncle Roy’s family. I have sixty four years of good memories and conversations with him. I would liked to have attended his funeral, his final service plan, but did not get notification of his death until today.

Our condolences to his wife Beverly and the Rowsell family!!

thinking of you all at this time. He was a good friend going back many years, from Labrador to Florida. Rest in peace.
