    It is always sad to hear of one’s passing. It was the same for me when Mike told me about ROY. Joann, Karen, Valerie and Bryan my heart goes out to you as you grieve for your husband and the kids for their dad. Folks that knew ROY will miss him as well. But we find peace and comfort in knowing as believers that we will see ROY again on that great and glorious day when JESUS and his angels return to claim those who are left. My prayers go out to the Harmon family.

    Dr. Robert and Glenda Courville says:

    Our prayers are with your family. Roy is now with God and is happy and healthy.

    Joann, Karen, Valerie, Bryan and family: To know Roy was to love him. He was my co-worker, later my boss and best of all, my friend for forty years. We drank thousands of cups of coffee and discussed that many newspaper articles together. He was a good man, faithful to his church and raised his children right. He was great at math and could figure how many barrels of whatever was needed for a job in his head. He knew all there was to know about welding, tractors and trucks among so many other subjects. I enjoyed our many visits these last few years (knowing not to show up during evening news time) maybe just sitting on the front porch watching the world go by or watching the westerns you loved so much with you. We will all miss you terribly, but how blessed we have all been by knowing you.
