Roy Green Shown was a kind and good man who had a dry wit and was a great storyteller (a Shown trait). He was also someone who loved his family and his friends. He was a man who always put a hand out to help others from plowing neighbor's fields to fixing problems for friends such as plumbing and etc. Although his presence here on earth is no longer 'seen' his impact on many lives will never forgotten.

He was the brother to J. B. Shown; John Shown and half brother to Hobart 'Dobbins' Shown, Pete Sawyers , Bill Sawyers . Two half sisters whose names were Viola Sawyers Collie , wife to, Floyd Collie and Frances Sawyers Poole , wife to, Ralph Poole.
