  1. Prior to Covid, I entertained at Aston Park as a keyboard player for several years. Roy was my biggest fan. He knew everyone there and was loved by staff and residents alike. He would always get the crowd in the mood for a good time on my performance days. What a wonderful man. He will be missed.

  2. Roy was the youngest (living) of 3 brothers that were my cousins. They were as close as brothers to me since we lived so close since I was 8 years old. I have lost the entire family one by one. Aunt Dovie and Uncle Frank were the best, loving, and giving relatives ever. I helped celebrate the engagement and marriage of Roy and Hilda, what a happy time! I loved them both so much. Roy and Hilda were servants of Jesus. I remember the beautiful hymns on the organ by Hilda, attending classes at Morningside Baptist Church with them. The birth of their children and the joy over each child. I know they are loved by our Lord and all of us who will gladly see them again.

  3. Loved the Gasperson family growing up in Morningside Baptist Church. Roy Mac always helpful with my family and he and his brothers were good church friends with our Dad, Clarence Dotson who died January 2020. Our love and prayers are with your families.

  5. Bruce, please accept my deepest sympathy on the loss of your precious Dad. He along with your uncle Herman were the only folks I trusted during my many moves through the years. My thoughts and prayers are with all the Gasperson family.

  6. The Gasperson Family, Roy will be truly missed. He was a dear friend and wonderful to all of us at Aston Park. Please except my deepest sympathy for your loss of your father and you all find peace knowing he is in heaven.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
