    I worked with Roy for years at Beaumont, and enjoyed every minute. Roy was a true gentleman, and as a native Pennsylvanian (Oakmont),we enjoyed a friendly bond in Cranberry, where I have a friend and relatives, and where he so loved his visits with his family (especially those grandchildren!).
    Rest in Peace, Roy.

  • Ted Mize

    I first met Roy in 1992 and worked along side him in the wire industry for more than 15 years. He was one of my mentors early in my career. During our many business trips together, Roy spoke often of Jeff, Andrea, Erin, and Sean. He was very proud of his family. Baseball, fishing, working on small engines, and his dogs, Ben and Jerry, were often part of the conversation. We would often venture off the beaten path to find some ice cream too, Roy was a kind person and was passionate about anything he did. I’ll be sure and have a Dewar’s in your memory, Roy. It was an honor to know you.

  • Lee Reiterman

    Roy. My big brother. When I think of Roy the words that come to mind are ambitious, dedicated, results. In his early years Roy tried anything including baseball, he played first base, paper route, he was an Orderly at Sinai Hospital, worked at the local entertainment store, cleaned the church +++. In his adult years he Engineered structures from bridges to sport stadiums, was a Technical Advisor to manufacturers of concrete and concrete reinforcement and wrote new and approved standards for the concrete industry. He participated in seminars worldwide to educate and inform professionals in structure design and building. In retirement he volunteered at a hospital and actively participated in his church. In his final years Roy struggled with Alzheimer’s and became something he wasn’t. Now he is no longer what he wasn’t.
    I salute you brother!
