It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to a wonderful husband, father and friend. Roy passed away peacefully with his loving wife and children at his side. He will be greatly missed by his wife Annie, who loved him completely and unconditionally. She supported him through his illness every step of the way to his last breath. He was her whole world, her life and he will remain forever in her heart. He will also be missed by his children: Terreasa (Troy), Terry (Trina), Victoria, Samantha and Tony and his mom Beverly, sister Lorraine and his brother Dave.

Roy was an amazing man, quiet and gentle with a great sense of humour. He was a man of few words, but when he spoke everyone listened. He was an entrepreneur at heart, building many businesses throughout his life, some still standing to this day. He had an amazing work ethic and a big heart. He was never too busy to help someone out and enjoyed sharing his enthusiasm and knowledge with anyone that needed it. He was an amazing father that took the time to share what was important in a loving and kind way. He encouraged his children to work hard, play hard and enjoy every minute of it.

Roy was well-known around town, especially when you wanted an ice cold drink, to have a barbecue or a shiny clean car. He will be missed by many and was loved by all. Although he is no longer here, he remains with us in our memories, and our hearts. His legacy lives on in his children and grand-children.

A Celebration of Roy’s Life will be held on August 3rd, 2013 at 1:00pm at Riverside Center, 148 Old Hedley Road, Princeton, BC. In lieu of flowers please make donations to the Roy Culbertson Youth Award for Excellence, to be awarded annually to a Princeton Secondary student.
