Roy grew up in Delaware and Mayes County; as a kid, he helped his family on their farm. When he was older, he, his dad and brothers helped build the Grand River Dam. Roy married Gertrude Bell Polone on May 24, 1950 in Bentonville, Arkansas. They made their home in Adair and raised their family on the farm where they have lived the last 62 years. Roy was one of the most hardworking men around, he didn't like sitting at the house, he had to be up doing something. He worked on his farm and always kept a big garden that had lots of watermelons. He and his son had a custom hay baling service and baled hay in Craig and Mayes counties for several years. Roy also worked construction and for the Adair County Barn for 10 years as a grader. He never really retired; he still farmed and kept his garden. He was an honest man and always loved an opportunity to help someone. He will be greatly missed by all those who knew him.
He was preceded in death by his parents, one son Terry Hobbs, 5 brothers and 2 sisters.
