He was predeceased by his sisters; Edith Hale, Evelyn Fedrow Betty Sherman Carolyn Dewhurst and Florence Miner. Roy was also predeceased by his brothers; Colin and Thomas Dewhurst.
Roy’s family would like to thank his oncologist, Dr. Susan Segreti DNP, RN, AOCNP for all of her compassionate care during Roy’s illness.
Calling hours will be held on Sunday, April 2 from 2-5 at the Smith Funeral Home, 3022 Oneida St. Sauquoit. His funeral service will be Monday at 11:00 at the funeral home. Interment will be in Norwich Corners Cemetery.
