John N. Roye Jr. went home to be with the Lord on July 3, 2020.  He was born on May 28, 1935 in Electra, Texas on the Waggoner Ranch to John N. Roye Sr. and Molly (Kuykendall) Roye.  His mother died when he was six months old and he was raised by his loving step-mother Arveda Sanders Roye.

On November 14, 1951 he married the love of his life Mary Millikan Roye.  They were blessed with three children.

He was employed by the Santa Fe Railroad for 42 years.  After his retirement he enjoyed working on the farm and with the cattle he raised.

He loved taking family vacations and his children have great memories of these vacations.  His family was always the most important part of his life and he was always there to help his children and grandchildren.

Serving the Lord was one of his greatest joys.  He made sure that all of his children and grandchildren knew that the Lord loved them, setting an example for all to follow.

He is survived by his children;  daughter, Debbie and husband, Bob Miller, son, Randy and wife, Darlene Roye and daughter, Lisa Roye Foree.  Grandchildren; Jennifer, Molly, Jana, Gina, J.D., Christopher and Peyton and 15 great grandchildren.  He is also survived by brothers; J.P.
