At a young age Roy regularly attended Sunday School and Church services at Cornerstone Baptist Church. He was a member of the youth choir. As a young man Roy enjoyed playing Cards, chess, basketball, football and fighting. He was most passionate about singing. Two of his favorite R&B artists were Teddy Pendergrass and Luther Vandross. Roy loved a good crab cake and potato salad. He would often say, "I never play with food I eat it." After receiving his GED Roy went into the Army for a brief period of time. He was discharged after beating up his commanding officer. "Roy did not play, he loved a good fight." He was certainly the protector of his siblings.

Although Roy was rough and tough on the outside he was a loving uncle who enjoyed showering his nieces and nephews with lots of candy and gifts. Roy was preceded in death by brother Henry Carroll, brother-in-law, Dwayne Pendelton and sister Pernell Clayton. Memories of Roy will forever linger in the hearts of his loving family: sisters, Van Lean Lee, Pastor Wonda Cofield, Gail Pedelton; brothers, Joseph (Cheryl), Kenneth (Tia) and Thomas Corey (North Carolina); sister/nieces, Patricia, Tammy and Stephanie; special cousin, Curtis Parham, uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces and a host of relatives and friends.
