BYHRE, Roy Everett

    Rose,
    I was privileged and fortunate to have you and Roy as my next door neighbours during my brief stay in Beaverdell in the early seventies. I immediately recognized I had solid neighbours and knew Roy as the kind of man who would lend a hand or council when needed.
    My condolences to you and yours,

    Dear Rose and family, we're so sorry and shocked to hear of Roy's passing. I enjoyed the phone call I had with you and the great stories I had the privilege of listening to on our visits and when Roy delivered me gravel over the last 17 years, he called me his best customer. Every time I paid him I told him not to spend it all at the casino and we always had a good laugh. You were great people and friends, we are so blessed to have met you.

    To Rose and family, I knew Roy and you, Rose, when I worked for the BCFS in Beaverdell many years ago. Roy was always at work, working on the property or in his shop. I recall him very clearly, even 40 years later. My condolences to you. Glenn Prior
