Their son, Monte Lee, was born May 31, 1991, and second son, Shawn,
followed May 3, 1994. Roy worked many years as a certified lumber inspector,
first at Spaulding and Son, and later at Rough and Ready Mill.
After the mills closed, he completed auto mechanic classes at Rogue Community College.
Roy loved spending time in the outdoors camping, fishing,
and hunting with his family. He enjoyed many fishing trips with
Ronnie, their sons, and friends at Union Creek.
Another favorite was camping near Lake Earl at the coast.
Many hunting trips with his brother Larry, dad, and uncles were truly treasured.
Roy remembered elk hunting in the Wallowa Mountains that included great-uncles as really special.

Annette Wickham. He is survived by his sons, Monte and Shawn;
brother, Larry Craig; and parents, Fred and Anita Craig, all of Grants Pass.
