Obituary for Roy Easterwood Jr.

Roy  Easterwood Jr.
Roy Easterwood, Jr., 86, of Temple, Texas passed away Thursday, January 4, 2017 at a local hospital. Roy was born February 4, 1931 to Roy Easterwood, Sr. and Ann (Parma) Easterwood.

Roy was born and raised in Temple. While in school in Temple, he held jobs at the Arcadia Theater, Temple Bank and Temple Daily Telegram. He graduated from Temple High School in 1948 and attended Texas Christian University as a music major before completing an associate degree at Temple Junior College, then transferring to University of Texas (Austin) where he graduated with a degree in Business Administration.

Roy married the love of his life, Leta O. Qualls, on September 14, 1952. They had two beautiful children, traveled extensively and loved encountering different cultures on their international travels.

After his graduation from college, Roy began a 40-year career with American Desk Manufacturing Company where he was recognized as a superb salesman. After his retirement, in 1993, he continued to enjoy travels with Leta, reading, keeping up with the stock market and cheering on his grandchildren in tennis tournaments and other sporting events. Roy enjoyed visiting and practicing his quick wit with the regulars while out to lunch locally and in surrounding communities.

A faithful lifelong member of First Christian Church, he served as elder and sang in the choir with Leta for 38 years. Roy was always true to his faith and loved all people.

Roy was preceded in death by his father Roy, Sr., his mother Ann, his sister Patricia Easterwood Jones and his great aunt Letha Easterwood. He is survived by his wife, Leta, daughter Kristi Grear of Troy, TX, and son Terry Easterwood and wife Renee of Bryan, TX, grandchildren Laura Stanley and husband Jon of Franklin, TX and Jeff Easterwood and wife Ashley of Spring, TX, and five great-grandchildren Ethan, Jack and Evan Stanley of Franklin, TX and Cera and Lily Easterwood of Spring, TX.

Roy was blessed with close friends at the Summit Fitness Center and through his church at First Christian Church. The family is most thankful for the care provided by the personnel at Baylor Scott & White STC4 and the palliative care team who cared for him in his last eleven days. The family also thanks members of First Christian Church for their visits in the past year and the wonderful loving support from Betsy Salyer.

Saturday, January 13, 2018, at 10 am, First Christian Church in Temple will host a visitation with the family in the church parlor room. A celebration of Roy’s life will follow at 11:00 AM in the church sanctuary. A private burial will occur later.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to First Christian Church at 300 N. 5th St. in Temple, TX, 76501.
