Bio and Links
Bio Photo Roy was born the fifth of twelve children. His mother was a very loving and religious person that persistently encouraged the family to do better. Leaving home at 18, he served with the First Cavalry Division in Korea, volunteered for a covert mission in Southeast Asia, and is an honorably discharged Vietnam-era veteran. A few weeks after his 20th birthday, he returned to Indiana and 3 months later married the love of his life, Gloria Faye Denney. Although, happier than he had ever been, he could not shake the wanderlust in his soul, so he moved his family around the USA for a few years, prior to permanently settling in Arizona.

He received his BS degree from Arizona State University and his Juris Doctor degree from Pepperdine University School of Law, Malibu, California. He completed Law School in two years and worked for a short time with the California Public Defender's Office, prior to returning to his first interest, engineering. As an Engineer, he thoroughly enjoyed his career and involvement with spacecraft, satellites, insulin pumps, and heart pacemakers.

He shared many wonderful years with Gloria, until her battle with cancer ended.

Thompson Family
Are you relation to the Thompson Family buried in the Spieker cemetery in Brown County? I am through Mary Ann Guthrie Thompson. If you do not mind to transfer her memorial to me---she is a sister to my great great grandfather John A. Guthrie. I would like to see her family info and data put on her memorial. Finding where she was buried took me almost 10 years and I was doing it for my grandfather who didn't live to know that I found her.
