In the summer of 2015, Roy first began experiencing pain on his right side.
He of course ignored the pain because if you knew Roy, you would understand
what a tough hombre is he!
Roy has been working construction since he was 12 years old. He was born
in Blythe, California and at a young age began working construction to
help his family. He moved to Fairbanks, Alaska to live with his aunt and
uncle where he began working alongside his uncle as a laborer on construction
sites where new residential homes were being built.
