Roy was born February 10, 1947, in Clovis, NM to John and Juanita Wall. He worked for the Santa Fe Railroad for over 35 years. Roy loved to fish and restore older homes with his wife, Ellen. He also worked for the armored truck service as well as a recycling plant.  In addition, he and Ellen loved to collect antiques and they owned an antique store in Ruidoso, NM for several years. Roy’s signature trait was his dry sense of humor.  He was always quick on the draw with a funny comment or a stinging reply, especially when someone tried to pull one over on him. While Roy was a man of few words, when he did speak, it was always from the heart.

Roy is preceded in death by his wife, Ellen Hickock Wall; sister, Harla Jean Gossett; and parents, John and Juanita Wall.

He is survived by daughters, Carrie Davis and husband Chris of Vega, TX, Sarah Luna and husband Rick of Amarillo, TX and Nicole Denil and husband Adam Grand of Coral Gables, FL; sons, Chris Denil and fiancé Debbie of Greenbay, WI and Matt Gonzales and wife Nicole Lee of Wisconsin Rapids, WI; sisters, Patsy Turner of Clovis, NM and Sherry Blain and husband Gary of Spring, TX; brother, Ronnie Wall and wife Kathy of Mountain Air, NM; and grandchildren, Savanna, David Michael and wife Julie, Isabel, Sebastian and wife Brisa, Diego, Matthew, Zachary, Elizabeth, Nicholas, Ashley, Sawyer, and Delaney.

  1. One of my favorite funny memories . . . He and Ellen were helping me fix a home we owned that had been vandalized. He brought all his tools and was teaching me to install a tile floor. We layed the floor one day and the next day we were going to grout. He gave me instructions on mixing the grout and set his mixing paddle and drill next to the bucket. When he arrived in the morning I was sweating bullets trying to hand mix with the paddle. “Roy!” I said, how in the hell do people have the strength to do this?” “Well” he said in his quiet southern drawl “It would help a lot of you used that drill settin right next to ya” One of the rare times I saw him belly laugh:). A funny story but a prime example of how he was always there to teach and/or to help in my life! I loved him dearly and he will be profoundly missed.
