Roy will be remembered for his caring heart and willingness to serve others. He never met a stranger and would always share a hug and say, “Jesus loves you and so do I.” Roy and Marilyn enjoyed camping with their children when they were younger and traveling together all over the United States. He was most proud of his children and the terrific adults they have grown into. Roy’s favorite activities were fishing and hunting. He had the talent of listening. You could talk to him about anything and he would always listen to what you had to say. Roy was always active in his church and had a love for the Lord that could be compared to none.
He was preceded in death by his father Lewis Franklin Christy and his mother Jewell (Powell) Christy.
Survivors include his wife of 60 years, Marilyn Christy, daughter Kameri Lynn (Randy Erickson) Christy, son Kevin Alan (Denise) Christy, grandson Parker Franklin McMullins, granddaughter Kassidy Marie McMullins, grandson Trevor Walter, brothers Lewis Howard (Joyce) Christy and Roger Floyd (Janice) Christy, and many nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers memorial contributions are suggested to Northern Hills Christian Academy which held a special place in Roy’s heart.
