March 24, 1924 – April 27, 2011

Roy Fenton passed away on Wednesday, April 27, 2011 at the age of 87 years.

Roy was over 6 feet of true Cowboy. His first and true love was horses. From chasing the chuck wagons, to chasing cows, or driving a team, he did it with a love and passion that was truly unconditional. His life experiences brought us all stories of laughter and intrigue that will be truly missed by all. Roy was the first person to say his life was a hard one, but there was never a moment in it that he would have traded. He will be sadly missed by his family and friends.

Roy is survived by a brother Lynn Fenton; sister and brother-in-law Frances and Alf Dionne; as well as many nieces and nephews, great-nieces and nephews, and numerous cousins and relatives. Roy was predeceased by his parents Mabel and Slim Fenton; sister Joy Elliott; and sister-in-law Dorothy Fenton.

    I have just found out today (25JAN2012)of Roy’s passing. I am so sorry to hear of your loss & mine also. I had not seen Roy since about 1961 when I was 11 years old. But I always remembered him as my hero who helped this little kid get out of a few sticky issues with my Mom(like helping me eat all the bread crusts that my Mom had saved for me to eat). I think Roy ate all of them for me. And he always promised to wait for me to grow up and then he would marry me. I have many fond memories of Roy and his Dad Slim. Just had to send this email as they were both very important people in my life.. My thoughts will be with you @ your loss of such a great cowboy!!!!
