Hello to the family of Roy Taylor, I have known Roy for over fifty years but only found out about his death a week ago. Was shocked to hear the news to say the least. I met Roy in 1967 in Germany, he and I were in the same Army outfit. I ran across him again when he first moved to Odessa and have been knowing him ever since. I just wanted to send my condolences to the family.

I met Roy when I was a teenager working in a car wash in Odessa. He was selling cars at Odessa Motor Company and would bring cars through the car wash regularly. He helped me get a job in the parts department there. Later worked for Roy when he had partnered with Grover Smith, building fiberglass motorcycle fairings. Always counted him as a friend, and we would run into each other from time to time and always talk and catch up. Ran into him in Big Spring at his business there several years ago and we talked for over an hour. I will miss that random opportunity of running into him and catching up. Sincere condolences to his family, I know it is a great loss. Stanley Prather
