Roy Oliver was born in Houston County. A quiet human throughout his life; he was born to John and Bessie Lamber Oliver on May 5, 1951. Roy’s life, as was his character, was a simple life. He didn’t need the latest in fashions or the most recent in trends. Roy always gave you respect and honor. He never complained. Roy was one of eleven children in his family; he is the twin brother to Joy, his sister. His family was of simple beginnings and hard work. He married the love his life Sandra Grady and they made their home for five wonderful children. Roy was employed with Wolf Cemetery Services starting in 1991 for many years. Roy knew the importance of being a cemetery professional. He also provided the most excellent care in services to numerous families in his career. He was dedicated to the cemetery business regardless of how beautiful a day it may have been or even in the worst of weather conditions. Roy recently retired from Metzer Cemetery Services, just before Sandra’s death in June 2017.
His wife Sandra Oliver; their children Jimmy, Dene, Carol, and Glenda; his brothers, Thomas, Sammy, and Marvin; and his parents all precede Roy in death.
Although, his daughter Lisa Dowdall is the last immediate survivor of Roy, he also leaves to cherish his legacy his brothers, Donald, Ronald and wife Samantha, Johnny and wife Sally; his sisters, Evon and husband Hubert Hall, Patricia and husband Edward May, his beloved twin sister, Joy and husband Raul Lumbreraz, and Nelda Benton; his brother in-law, Tom and wife Sandra Grady; his numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and his precious fur baby Joy.
Roy’s family, especially Lisa Dowdall, would like to express their deepest gratitude to Kim May (Roy’s niece) for all the love and support she had given to uncle Roy unconditionally.
