They were married at Ninth Street Methodist church in Cambridge, OH. In 1969, the couple welcomed their first daughter, Trina. In 1972, they welcomed their second daughter, Tania. In 1976, the family moved to Florida. In 1979, they moved to Oregon where Roy started his own business, Roy’s Upholstering, that he successfully ran for over 30 years. He retired in 2013, at the age of 72, to quietly care for his wife.
