Roy Allen Marchant lost his long fight against cancer on Tuesday, September 13, 2022. In honor of him, the family asks for donations to help fight the disease that took his life.
Roy was a lover of the outdoors and worked for the Utah Division of Natural Resources. He was an avid reader and enjoyed working with wood. Life was a passion for Roy, and he rarely did anything part way. He covered his basement wall with vintage Coca-Cola signs and loaded shelves with Coca-Cola paraphernalia. But to Roy, the only actual Coke was one purchased at McDonald’s. He had a fantastic sense of humor and loved to laugh. Others knew Roy as a loyal friend and a compassionate man. But what mattered most to Roy was always his family, especially his children and grandchildren. His eyes lit up whenever he spoke of them, and his favorite creation was the crib he made for his granddaughter. For Roy, food was an experience to be savored. He loved to cook and gathered his family for Sunday dinner every week. During football season, the dinners needed to be scheduled around the game schedule since he never missed watching his beloved Raiders.
