He was an encourager and mentor to numerous people. His wisdom, leadership and love will be greatly missed. He truly epitomized Christ-likeness.Roy was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and brother. His family has been blessed to be the recipients of his godly example. Whether at work or at home, he consistently displayed the love of Jesus. His legacy continues on in his family: his wife Sharon, his daughters, Janay Stephens and Lisa Sanders, his sons-in-law, Michael Stephens and Gary Sanders; his grandchildren, Rustin Sanders, Zach and Elisabeth Stephens; his great-grandchildren, Zayd, Seraya and Lillen Sanders; and his brother, Dale Moody and his wife Retta and their children.Although Roy may not be with us any longer, his impact lives on. "His master said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.'" Matthew 25:21"Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord" I Corinthians 15:58In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Deaf Ministry at Quail Springs Baptist Church.
