Obituary for Robert 'Bob' Roy

Robert P. ‘Bob’ Roy, 86, of Jaffrey died peacefully on Saturday December 8, 2018 at his home with his wife by his side.

He was born February 12, 1932 in Jaffrey, son of the late Edward J. and Lillian (Letourneau) Roy.

Bob was a 1952 graduate of Conant High School in Jaffrey. Following graduation, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and served honorably during the Korean Conflict. He also served with the 210th Engineer Detachment of the NH National Guard in Peterborough and retired as a Sergeant.

Throughout his life, Bob had enjoyed working in a variety of fields. He had worked locally at W.W. Cross Co. in Jaffrey before working in sales with the Beech Nut Corporation. He also worked as a beloved school bus driver at Laidlaw. Early on he had served as a special police officer in Jaffrey which helped prepare him for his many years in the NH Marine Patrol. His love of sports led him to become a local basketball referee. In his spare time Bob enjoyed woodworking, and he especially loved being with his family.
