He served as a civil service chairman for twenty years and was member of the Pickaway Country Club, Historical Society and the Ted Lewis Museum. He received the Chamber Award of Congress in 1960 and in 1981, Boss of the Year by the legal secretaries of Pickaway County. He was in the Presidents Club at The Ohio State University and past president of the Pickaway Alumni Association. He was proud to be the sole sponsor and successfully passed the law requiring insurance companies to include uninsured and under-insured motorist coverage, a law still on the books today. He was a member of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America and had the pleasure of arguing a case in front of the Ohio Supreme Court. He was one of the first Golden Members of the YMCA and yearly contributor to P.I.C.C.A. (Pickaway County Community Action). Roy and Marilyn shared their beach house in Florida with the local Boys home and Roy provided free legal services when necessary to members of the community. He liked to share with all that in 1951 he helped create the first pumpkin burger at the Youth Canteen. He enjoyed season tickets to Buckeye football and basketball games and was an avid golfer. He and Marilyn loved to travel the country and the world. Roy had a presence when he walked into a room and he never forgot a face or a name. His family misses him dearly and he will remain a part of our hearts forever. A special thanks goes out to Pickaway Manor (which he helped co-found) and Heartland Hospice. Per his wishes there will be a private family interment and memorial in the future. In lieu of flowers, Roy requested to please do something kind for someone else.
