Education was an important focus and a trait that was encouraged by Roy. He spent 23 years at Clark County Community College in various positions, retiring as director of counseling in May 1999. Roy will be missed by his devoted wife, Verna; and his loving children and their families, Kevin and Beth Burrows (Margaret and Sam) and Karen (nee Burrows) and Gene Quandt (Tim and Ty).
