Roy was a man of many interests and talents.  He was very active in all aspects of San Antonio Church, including the Men’s and Ladies Club, the pizza and spaghetti dinners and Lunch on the House. Roy often volunteered his sheetmetal talents for improvements around the church.  

As a young man, he was a great dancer and a musician. Roy played the upright bass in a jazz band with his brother Pat. They played various weddings and clubs throughout Cincinnati. Roy continued to play weekly with Pat up until the last few months.  

After retiring in 1999 from Kirk and Blum Manufacturing, Roy became a motorcycle enthusiast, buying his first bike at age 70. He made many friends over the past eighteen years. He particularly enjoyed his many annual trips to Washington, D.C. for The Rolling Thunder ride to honor veterans. Roy was a veteran himself, having served in the Army from 1956-1958.

Roy’s other interests included watching local sports, reading, cooking, refinishing furniture and spending time with his family and friends. He was truly loved, and will be greatly missed.
