Roger L. Roy (1948-2019)

Roger L. Roy

PUNTA GORDA, Fla. – Roger L. Roy, 70 of Eustis, died on March 3, 2019, due to complications from Multiple Meyeloma; he was surrounded by family.

He was born in Livermore Falls on Dec. 11, 1948, the son of Raoul L. Roy and Fluerange “Flo” Veilleux Roy. He grew up on the River Rd, and graduated from Livermore Falls High School in 1968.

After graduation he became a pipefitter/welder first at Otis Mill and then at International Paper. He was then introduced to meat cutting by Roger Libby at Brettun’s Variety. This became Roger’s passion. In the early 80s he started his first meat shop Triple R Custom Meats with his then wife Vicki. In 1987, he then opened RB’s Meats in Brettuns for 20 plus years with his wife the former Bonnie Timberlake, who passed away in 2007.

Roger retired in the fall of 2010 and made a permanent move to Eustis to the "Camp" that he and Bonnie enjoyed since 2000. In 2008, he met his future love, Daphne "Scrib" Scribner and they became inseparable. With meat cutting in his blood he came out of retirement and they started a small meat cutting shop at their home in 2016.

He loved his little world in Eustis with Daphne. He was a lover of the outdoors - hunting (especially Partridge), fishin, walking in the woods for “sheds” or sitting on the porch watching the river. He also looked forward to his daily get together with his “coffee clutch” Paul Tetreault, John Thompson and Mike Carrier.

Roger is survived by the "Love of his Life" Daphne Scribner; daughter Cathy Ann Roy, son Jamie Michael Roy (Darice Dubreuil); sister, Doris Stanley; brother, Roland Roy and wife Lottie; brother-in-law, Ken Smith; sister-in-law, Sarah Roy. Daphne’s children, Polly Comeau (Randy) and children; Odie Bachelder (Laurie) and the "absolute rays of sunshine in his life" granddaughters, Avery Elise & Emery Rose; nephews Troy Stanley, Scott Stanley, Travis Williams and Jason Williams; nieces Tracy Gray and Kim (Roy) Hawkes.

He was predeceased by his parents, wife Bonita J. Roy; a sister, Suzanne Smith; brother, Raymond Roy; brother-in-law, Gordon Stanley.

The family would like to say thank you to The Harold Alfond Center, Franklin Memorial Oncology and Florida Cancer Center for your exceptional treatment of Roger. Also, a special thanks to Ross Schultz of Roberson Funeral Home in Port Charlotte, Fla. for helping us navigate this difficult situation and to Finley Funeral Home in Livermore Falls.
