CASCO  — Robert “Bob” G. Roy died on Aug. 31, 2012, from cancer at Bridgton Hospital, surrounded by family and friends. Bob was born on Dec. 6, 1953, the son of Albert L. and Rita M. (Bobony) Roy. He grew up in Westbrook and attended schools there, and was an altar boy at St. Mary’s Church.

Bob’s strong work ethic started when he was very young, doing various jobs with a diversity of skills, and continued on with Frank’s Truck Kaps for over 35 years. His business partner, Joe Mains, was his best friend for over 18 years as well, and his wife, Paula, and their children, Taylor and Trevor, were considered family. Family came first with Bob. He was a loyal friend, always ready to lend a helping hand. He had no enemies. Bob’s personality was outgoing with love to all. His integrity was pure and honest. His heart was compassionate, and he held a special place for all animals. He had many pets throughout his life and leaves behind his cat, Trouble. Bob’s sense of humor was uniquely his own and he kept that until his final day.

Bob’s hobbies were hunting, fishing, boating, snowmobiling, motorcycling, and golfing. He was an artist with wood and his craftsmanship. One of his favorite hobbies was basket weaving. He was an avid reader and was very knowledgeable about Native American culture. He will be remembered for his spiritual generosity, and missed by family and many friends.
