Lee Roy Anthony "Roy" Carricut

After his mother was murdered by his father he was taken in by the Dufour family. They took him out of school in the 8th grade and set him to work as a farm slave. He remembered crying as the bus took the other children to school. He ran away at age 18.

Here he is at his mother's grave in 1997, with his wife Eloise in 1986, and with his sister Ada. Roy and Eloise were married for 62 years. This is his obituary.
