Roy was born in Texas City, Texas. His family then moved to Leesville where Roy graduated from Pickering High School in 1990. Not long after graduating high school Roy decided he would move to Natchitoches where he met many new friends and made memories to be cherished for a lifetime. Roy was a very talented carpenter and could build almost anything someone asked him to. Roy had a heart of gold and would give the shirt off his back to help anyone. He was a loving father, brother, son, grandfather and uncle. He will be missed dearly by family and friends.

He is survived by his children, Melissa Owen (husband Colton), Coleton Goff and Kamron Abrams; sister, Julie Boswell (husband Joe); brother, Jessie Abrams Jr.; sister, Laurie Francis; brother, Tuxie Peoples; two beautiful granddaughters, Kathy Goff and Chloe Renee Owen; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation to everyone for all the prayers at this time of need and also for the donations because without them none of this would have been complete.
