As a child Roy attended the Valley Home Country School, graduated from Superior High School and attended Western Nebraska Technical College at Sidney, Nebraska, where he received his aircraft mechanics licenses and also obtained his private pilot's license, a continuation of the training he began in high school. He was a lifelong member of the St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Superior.
Roy was employed by the Trans-Nebraska Airlines at Alliance, Nebraska, until the company closed its doors. He then worked in Casper, Wyoming, as an aviation mechanic and it is there that he received his commercial pilot's license. He worked as a charter pilot for a short time but realized that wasn't for him and began a job doing pipeline patrol. Being the youngest pilot on the company's largest route he gained a lot of experience in a very short amount of time covering the Pacific Northwest and central states from Oregon and Washington to Illinois, Oklahoma and Texas and all the states in between. He eventually got into crop dusting in Texas and returned to Nebraska working for the Farmers Aerial Spraying out of Cadams, Nebraska, and the Grove family and eventually he started Roy's Aerial Spraying later purchasing his own land to build an airstrip.
On September 25, 1993 he was united in marriage to Patricia "Trish" Alexander at the St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Lyons, Nebraska.
