Roy was a Jehovah’s Witness and spent more than 50 years devoted to increasing his knowledge of the Bible. He loved the bible passage at Revelation 21: 3, 4 which offers the wonderful hope for all mankind, “A paradise earth, with no sickness, death or pain”.                  

Roy was a loving brother, father, uncle, grandfather and great grandfather. He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends.

He enjoyed mechanic work and was known in the community for operating his business Roy and Riches Auto Repair, later Roy and Son’s. Often conducting business on a hand shake he worked with people to make sure car repairs were affordable, at times offering his service free of charge. Roy loved horseback riding in the mountains.           

Roy leaves behind three children and their families; Michael Roy (Dixie) Lucero, Laurie Jo (Rick) Fronk, and Mitchell John Lucero; six grandchildren who will miss his smile and playful nature; six great-grandchildren; two brothers Daniel (Lena) Lucero, Dave (Mariann) Lucero;  and one sister Ursula Cordova.

Joe was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers Lee and Steve and two sisters Lucille and Bernice. 

Special thanks to the wonderful care he received at the George E. Wahlen Veterans Home in Ogden and Bristol Hospice.
