Birth: Sep. 19, 1893
Death: Oct. 18, 1918, France

Private Roy W. Pixley of Co. I, 108th Infantry was killed in action October 18, 1918. It was not the first time Private Pixley had been 'over the top,' being with the 108th in the battles of Sept 28th and 29th when the famous Hindenburg line was broken.
Roy W. Pixley, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Pixley of Delevan, was born Sept. 19, 1897 in Delevan and spent the greater part of his life there, until he went to Franklinville in 1916 and was employed by the Ontario Knife Co. Following the entrance of the United States in the world war, he joined Co. I, 108th Infantry and after several months training at Olean left with that company for overseas during the summer of 1918.
On arrival in France the Company was immediately put in active serving at the front end and when it became Private Pixley's lot to go 'over the top' the order was bravely carried out but at grave cost. There is no greater honor than this to give one's life for one's country.
Private Pixley leaves to mourn their loss, his parents, two brothers, and one sister."
