Sorry to hear about Roy. We had a good many years together.
I actually think about him often. Most Christmas's he would get me tools.
When I go to use them he pop's up in my mind.
Warm regards,

Steve Plank

Aunt Darlene, Roy, Ron Carol, Heather, Mikayla, and Lexie you are in our prayers. I have many fond memories with Uncle Butch of playing softball at family picnics and out at Maple Grove. And every time a see an International Scout for sale I think I should but it and paint it red and white like his. He will be missed! Our Love to you, Steve and Lori Plank
