Roy was born on a farm in Erie, KS. He was the third of three children. The family moved to Joplin, MO and his father opened a small business selling gas, doing repairs, selling wood--anything to make a living. Roy's mother passed away in 1936 at the age of 44. His father remarried a few years later and his new wife Lela Brooks brought to the marriage a daughter, and together Arthur and Lela had one son.
Roy grew up in Joplin, graduated high school, married Lenora Deane Mefford and they had a son, Roy "Scott" Brooks. Roy joined the Navy, he trained in San Diego, CA and spent some time overseas. He returned from the Navy and went to work for Standard Oil. He retired from Standard Oil, Sugar Creek, MO around 1980.
In 1984 he married Maggie and became a member of a large, loving family. In his retirement, Roy and Maggie traveled and enjoyed their time together in their Independence yard overseeing the birds and the flowers.
Roy is predeceased by Lenora Deane, his son Scott and his brother Chub.
