Roy was born on September 16, 1943 in Vancouver, Canada. He worked in the garbage disposal industry for 60 years, beginning his career at BFI Waste Systems. He later joined USA Waste and Waste Management, before serving the last 16+ years as the Executive Vice President of Maintenance & Facilities at Honolulu Disposal.
Roy was a hot rod enthusiast and enjoyed working on his cars. He loved spending time with his devoted family, especially his mo'opuna.
Roy is survived by Malulani, his wife of 33 years; sons Kalei and wife Allison, Keaka and fiancée Lindsay; and mo'opuna: Kamea, Mahina, Ryder, and Jordyn.
Known for his witty humor, kindness, and caring nature, Roy was truly one of a kind. He will be missed by many.
Our 'Ohana would like to express our gratitude for all the love and support, well wishes, and kindness you all have blessed us with.
