Roy grew up in Enid, OK before enlisting in the US Army Air Force in 1944. He was a Belly Ball Turret Gunner on a B-24 Bomber in World War II completing 33 combat missions. Roy was honorably discharged as a Staff Sergeant. After being discharged Roy settled in Glenpool, OK where he met the love of his life, Louise Forest, at a basketball game. They were married on March 5, 1948, and recently celebrated 75 years of marriage. They had 3 children Forrest (Dwayne), Donald (Don), and Charles (Chuck). Roy and Louise bought a 40-acre farm in Glenpool which came to be known as J-5. Aside from his family, J-5 was Roy’s pride and joy. This is where they raised their sons, ran cattle, baled hay and gardened. Roy and Louise hosted many family holidays, church events, and friends on the farm. He loved to tinker in his shop building and was always working on, repairing or making something. Roy also worked for Oil Dynamics for many years before retiring in 1990.
