On June 13th 1975 they had their first son Myles and a daughter Alaina was born on January 30th 1977. He ranched for over 29 years, raising a fine herd of charolais cross cattle. He worked far too many jobs to list and affected everyone that he met. He was an honest hard working man, who was always willing to lend a hand to anyone who needed it. Retiring from ranching in 2001, Roy and Beth moved to 16 mile, just outside of Cache Creek BC. He finally got to buy the sailboat that he always wanted. Roy went to be with the Lord on February 24th 2008 after a two and a half year battle with cancer. A service was held in Cache Creek Pentecostal church on February 29th 2008 and his body was laid to rest in Ashcroft cemetery by the Thompson River.
