    I had a lot of good time with Roy.
    Most of it was bowling and bowling tournament.
    He was a great guy.
    I am sorry I will not be able to make the memorial service.
    One crazy memory.
    Back 40 years ago We rented off of Roy on Broad Street at his body shop. We stored our equipment and flammable finish there.
    One evening we were there loading the vans and having a couple beers and bull shitting.
    One of our friends came by to sell fireworks.We all were interested in buying some.
    So the Guy put a rocket in one of the old car trunk lids and lit it. The rocket tilled and went right into the guys car trunk . Loaded with fireworks.
    There was fireworks shooting everywhere. We all closed the doors to the shop and went running.
    NOT Forest!
    He got out the garden hose and tried putting it out. Roy’s yelling at him dad get back. Forest stood there 10-15 ft away still pouring water on it.When the fire department got there is was still burning but no rockets were going off by then.
    All that was left was the shell.
    Roy was one of my friends that showed me the love between a son and his father!
    When my dad died he was my best friend.
    Thanks Roy!
    Have a lot more great memories but I think we had to much to drink to remember them.
    RIP ROY!
