Roy was a member of the Happy Warriors and Roll Call in Dallas Fort Worth. He was simply a great guy who made the Sunset luncheons fun and relaxing. He never seemed to get enough education of all subjects. He never quit learning. A wonderful man. I will miss him. I will miss him a lot . Chuck Hodge

I spent some of my best teen years living by the Kinslow family and always had much respect for Roy. He was always kind and willing to share stories and expertise on anything I asked him about. Prayers for the family I grew up with Dean, Jeff and Suzette as you struggle to deal with your loss.
