In Loving Memory of Roy Franklin Styner

He leaves behind his beloved wife Nora of 61 years; his two sons Leland (Ellen) and Parker (Carina); two granddaughters Ellysa (Brendon) and Jenny (Tanner); and one sister Edy. He was predeceased by his son Marlin in 2014, his parents Louis and Blanche Styner (Higbie), and 11 siblings, Dick, Harold, Don, Bob, Ralph, Viola, Alice, Dorothy, Lucille, Jean, and Shirley.

Roy was born at Rabbit Lake, Sk. and lived at Robinhood until 1946 when the family moved to the Innisfree area. Later Roy moved to Edmonton where he met the love of his life Nora, and in 1958 they were married and started a family. They relocated to Red Deer in 1970 where they have continued to reside.

Throughout his life, Roy had many different jobs from being a heavy equipment operator to driving a Taxi, Gravel Truck then to Long Distance Hauling from Edmonton to California. He designed and built Motor Homes, was a Realtor, and finished his career as a successful car salesman in Red Deer. Roy was a dedicated family man, loved animals, enjoyed family camping, liked traveling, he was active in the community, an avid skier, golfer, and curler. Roy was a member of the Sunnybrook United Church and sang in the choir.

He had a great sense of humor and loved nothing more than being with family and laughing to the point of tears. He was always ready to lend a hand with any project or repair, and at times would take the lead hand when welcomed and make sure it was done properly. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends and will forever be in our hearts.

On October 10, 2020 the family gathered at Heimtal Moravian Cemetery in South Edmonton for a private service.

Dear Nora and family:

I just want to say how much I cared for Roy. Being part of Sunnybrook Choir is so special for many of us and I have missed him the past few months. I will not forget how welcoming he was when I moved back to Red Deer and joined the choir again. I am also so sorry for your loss.

Our deepest sympathy and prayers to you Nora and family. We remember with fondness the many years you were our neighbors here on Dobler Ave. I was recalling an early fall rain and sleet storm we had, I believe it was in 1997, Roy was quick to arrive on the scene with his chain saw in hand to tackle the destruction of fallen branches and trees. He was always so willing to lend a hand. So sorry for your loss.
