Roy was born on January 24, 1921 and passed away on Wednesday, August 9, 2017.

Roy was a resident of Lake Allatoona, Georgia at the time of passing.

As a teenager, he earned a scholarship to Georgia Tech and became a hell of an (aeronautical) engineer, working at NACA (now NASA) in Hampton, Virginia, where he met and later married Audrey Campbell at the University of Virginia chapel in 1944.

His father was in the Army and they traveled extensively while he was a young boy, venturing to New Mexico, Alaska, Washington, the Philippines and China.

He was remarkably intelligent, and was particularly known (and is fondly remembered) for his kindness, service, compassion, generosity and, of course, his legendary "camel face." A funeral is scheduled for Saturday, August 12, at 3:00 pm at St. James Episcopal Church in Marietta, Georgia, with a burial service to follow at St. James Cremation Gardens. www.mayeswarddobbins.com 770-428-1511 AUG 12. 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM St. James Episcopal Church 161 Church Street N W Marietta, GA, US, 30060 AUG 12. 03:00 PM St. James Episcopal Church 161 Church Street N W Marietta, GA, US, 30060 Memorial Service begins.
