ROY – Reid M., 63, of Southwest Port Mouton, Queens County, passed away peacefully in Queens General Hospital, Liverpool on Tuesday, January 21, 2014.

Born in Southwest Port Mouton, he was a son of the late Floyd J. and Edna (Fisher) Roy.

Reid was a fisherman all his life. When he wasn’t on the water, he enjoyed camping, horseshoes, of which he and his father won many trophies. Reid enjoyed the Blue Jays and the Maple Leafs even when they were losing and went to Toronto with Mike and Robert to see his beloved Blue Jays play. Although he and Janie had no children of their own, their home and yard always had kids in it. He enjoyed his time volunteering at the West Queens Recreation Center catering and doing anything and everything the ladies asked. He enjoyed darts and a good game of crib. He was one of the first  affiliate members of the Mersey Branch #38, Royal Canadian Legion, Liverpool and will always be remembered as a huge Elvis fan.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 41 years, Valerie “Jane” (Fisher); sister Valerie Roy of Beech Hill, brothers Arnold (Judy) of Mersey Point and Floyd G. “Buster” of Port Mouton. His special niece Roberta (Michael) Roy of Southwest Port Mouton and great nephew Robert.

He was predeceased by his sister Juanita Rosita Lloyd and nephew Joel Roy.

Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home, Liverpool. At Reid’s request, there will be no funeral service. No flowers, donations may be made to the West Queens Recreation Center or the Southwest Port Mouton Cemetery. Online condolences may be made to www.chandlersfuneral.com

I’m so sorry and saddened to hear of your loss. Reid was always so kind to us when we would come up and visit. I’ll never forget how warm and inviting you both were during our summers in SWPM. Some how you guys always had the best Nintendo games and were always so willing to share. Even though we’d only see you and Reid every few summers, it always felt like visiting close family.

Sending you lots of love and sympathy.

Reid has left so many of us with wonderful memories. He had a sense of humor that made you like him instantly. I first met you and Reid over 30 years ago at Molega Lake Campground (great memories there) and I played many games of horseshoes against Reid and his dad. Whenever I saw Reid over the years he never changed and was always that friendly, funny guy that we all thought so much of. You are in my thoughts at this sad time!
