Reggie Roy, age 38, of Cavour, passed away Monday, December 17, 2018, at his home due to complications from diabetes. A celebration of Reggie’s life was held at 5:30 PM, Friday, December 21, at the Kuhler Funeral Home.

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.

I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to all of Reggie’s family. Death is the hardest thing we have to deal with in life. I know my words can do little to ease the pain you are feeling, so I pray that the God of comfort be with you to help you cope. (2 Thessalonians 2:1617) Lean on Him in the days to follow and read of our amazing hope for our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death. (John 5:28) For the Bible’s answers to questions about grief and death please visit JW.org. Elaine Lambert

My sincerest condolences to the friends and family of Reggie. I remember him from when I was a teenager, he and my brother were good friends. He helped me out a time or two when my vehicle got stuck in the snow during winter. He had that big old Suburban that could get through anything. I know how difficult this is and am praying for you all. Tina Knowlton Davis
