Reggie Alexander Roy was born January 14, 1980, to Carol Roy and Matthew Peck at Bismarck, North Dakota. Raised by his grandmother, Joyce Roy, Reggie grew up in Huron and attended Huron High School. Later in life, he spent many years living with and learning from his uncle, Richard Roy.
Throughout the years, Reggie worked as a floor technician for Service Master, a welder for Overbuilt, was later employed at Dakota Provisions and with an independent contractor as a mail carrier.
On August 12, 2007, Reggie married Amy VanOverschelde at Huron. From this union they had one son, Alex. The couple later divorced in October 2010.
Reggie spent many hours on the open road while on his motorcycle. He looked forward to the annual Roy Boy Run through the Black Hills. Reggie could be found creating new contraptions to make tasks more efficient. He taught himself how to play the guitar, and played it rather well. He enjoyed playing cards and video games with friends, reading, writing stories and poems and spending time with his dog, Maully. Most of all, he loved his son.
