August 26, 1949 -
May 7, 2013
Our brother Roy passed away on Tuesday morning, May 7, 2013. He was born at Boohers Maternity Home north of Drain, Oregon, on August 26, 1949. Roy was the fourth of ten children born to our parents Delbert and Helen Langdon. He was a kind, quiet country boy with a great smile. If you asked Roy how he was doing, he would always say “pretty good!” Roy was raised on the Red Hill family farm and was our number one tractor operator during hay season. Roy enjoyed trips to Washington visiting relatives and especially enjoyed the antique tractor shows while there. Roy also enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping, rodeos, PBR Bull Riding, watching westerns on TV and the Walton’s. He loved Coca Cola and strawberry ice cream. Roy’s favorite color was red. There is an empty chair at the dinner table, but our loss is Roy’s gain. Goodbye Roy. We will all miss you. Happy trails to you until we meet again. Love, from your family.
