Clair P. Roys Jr.

Joe had sent me this last year, but I did not remember he had sent it.

Clair P. Roys Jr. of Nestico Court, Bristol, died Friday at Care Manor in Farmington. He was 74. Mr. Roys was born in Bristol, son of the late Clair P. Roys Sr. and Mary Lagasse Roys.

A lifelong Bristol resident, he was a U.S. Army veteran of World War II and was employed at Peck Spring for 21 years before retiring in 1986. He was a member of the McNamee Chapter 5 of the Disabled American Veterans and St. Ann Church in Bristol. He leaves his wife, Constance Lucier Roys; two sons, Richard Roys and Robert Roys, both of Bristol; a daughter, Judith Tarrant of Danbury; three sisters, Ann Gamache of Bristol, Marie Ballash of Plainville and Bertrude Kinney of Bangor, Maine; three grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held Wednesday at 11 a.m. at Funk Funeral Home, 35 Bellevue Ave., Bristol. Burial with military honors will be in St. Joseph Cemetery, Bristol. Friends may call Wednesday from 10 to 11 a.m. at the funeral home. Memorial donations may be made to the St. Ann Church Renovation Fund, 215 West St., Bristol, CT 06010.

Senior moments I guess…

Clair P. Roys Jr. is Harold Roys Sr.’s brother.

I am sure Harold Jr. must have met him and he probably has pictures to share or has pictures of people he can’t identify.

Maybe I can…
