Roy was predeceased by Joyce, his wife of 55 years, in 2007. Roy was the last surviving sibling of a large family and lived a wonderful 91 years.

Roy was very proud to receive the Century Farm Award from the Province of Alberta earlier this year. His second passion, behind farming, was auctioneering and he operated Roy’s Auction Service for many years across southern Alberta, holding farm, household and government auctions.
