Roy Emanuel

Our Dad read the obituaries every single week and it always really ticked him off when it didn’t say how the person died.  We promised him that when it was his turn to have his story told, we wouldn’t leave all you dedicated readers wondering what happened.  However, before we tell you the story of Roy’s passing, you have to read about how he lived.  So buckle up folks, because this is the story of one of the great ones…the man, the myth, the legend, our Dad…Roy Nelson Emanuel.  
Dad was born on August 19, 1938.   He had fond memories of attending grammar school in Hamilton County (District 32 Deering), and recalls raising the flag every morning before school, the boys pumping the water into the crock for everyone to drink from during the day, and spending recess in the coal house playing mumbly peg and chatting with his friends.  He graduated from Phillips High School in 1956 as a multiple letter-winner.
