Roy was born to Pedro “Pete” and Felipa Juarez Reyes in Rockdale, Texas on October 29, 1934. Roy knew the value of being an honest and hard worker, passing those characteristics on to his children and grandchildren. He was employed with Texas A&M University for just over a decade in the physical plant. He began working early in life at Orr’s Downtown Grocery which then became Piggly Wiggly. He was a good cook who enjoyed having a fresh pot of beans ready to serve to his family and friends who would stop by for a visit. Roy perfected the secret of fried corn bread, which we will miss. Roy was a man of service and carried that passion to be a Porter at The Tower formerly known as Holiday Plaza and The Colony. The excitement Roy held in his heart for his Dallas Cowboy Football Team will never be matched by another person. He lived for Dallas Cowboy Football. Roy’s commitment to his McDonalds Morning Coffee Group was a passion of his for years.
His parents Pedro and Felipa; his great grandson, Jaxon Matthew Arredondo; his sister Lupe Reyes-Perez; his sister-in-law, Ricarda Reyes, all precede Roy in death.
Roy is survived by Raul Reyes, Robert (Cubby) Reyes, Rachael and husband Travis Manriquez, Rebecca (Becky) and husband Mario Arredondo, Rosie Reyes and Jessie (JJ) Juarez; his sister, Alice Reyes; his brothers, Alex Reyes, Pete Jr., and wife Mary Helen Reyes, Sam and wife Berta Reyes; the mother of his children Emma Reyes; his eleven grandchildren; Paul Anthony Enriquez, Jessica Rocha, Anthony Martinez, Matthew Arredondo, Morgan Martinez, Angelica Manriquez, Christian Manriquez, Jordan Arredondo, Antonio Manriquez, Brianna Reyes, Nicholas Arredondo, nine great grandchildren; a host of nephews and nieces; and other relatives.
