January 20, 2020
Early in the morning of January 20, 2020, Lee Roy Willis, loving husband, father of two daughters, and two granddaughters, departed this life with a smile on his face. Roy was born on either April 4, 1946 or April 16, 1946 to Echol & Olie Willis in Blackwater, Virginia. Two birthdays are better than one! Roy was a friendly person who never met a stranger. He loved the Lord and loved discussing the Bible with anyone that would listen. He enjoyed his friends and family, crabbing, golfing, boating, and NASCAR. Roy was a builder by trade and owned a construction company with his brother-in-law, Dan Flanary. His work took him from Virginia to Maryland to North Carolina and then finally settled in Pawleys Island, SC in 2007. Roy is preceded in death by three brothers, Dewey Willis, Brady Willis, and Bill Willis; and three sisters, Lois Warehine and Anna Mae Robinette. He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Linda Flanary Willis; two daughters, Audrey (Missy) Duffield Turnage, and husband John, of Yuma, AZ, and Kathy Willis Diaz and husband Paul of Pawleys Island; two granddaughters, Adrianna Marie Diaz and Amber Louise Duffield; one sister, Sue Ella Gunn and numerous nieces and nephews. The family wants to extend a heartfelt thank you to those who have assisted us with love and support for us during the end of Roy’s earthly journey. Graveside service will be 1:00 pm, Friday, January 24, 2020 at Pennyroyal Memorial Gardens in Georgetown, SC with Benji Wham, pastor of the Refuge Church, Murrells Inlet, officiating. Music by Elizabeth Choate Mills, from Columbia, a long-time family friend. Please sign an online guestbook at www.goldfinchfuneralhome.com. Goldfinch Funeral Home, Beach Chapel is serving the family.
