After a two year battle with ALS, Roy Deleon went home on March 31, 2015. He was 59 years old. Roy was born in Galveston and later settled in San Antonio. After high school he moved to Dallas where he eventually met the person he was meant to be with, Medrith Rhotenberry. They have been together for 34 years. Roy is preceded in death by his older brother Jessie Deleon and survived by his parents, Don and Patricia Starnes, brothers David Deleon, Robert Deleon, James Starnes; sisters Lisa Gregg and Donna Starnes. Roy did not have any children.

Roy was passionate about the guitar and he loved sports. His favorite teams were the Dallas Cowboys, Texas Rangers, Dallas Mavericks, San Antonio Spurs, and Texas Longhorns. He attended Life Church, 113 N. Jackson, Kaufman, Texas, where a celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, April 11, 2015 at 3:00 pm.

In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the VNA Hospice who was more than willing to accept Roy as a client and help him as he battled ALS.
