Roy Lee Waters of Belton, Missouri was born July 6, 1950 in Kansas City, Missouri the son of Wavil C. and Leona K. (Weidinger) Waters. He departed this life on Monday, July 20, 2020 at Research Medical Center, Kansas City, Missouri at the age of 70 years and 14 days.
He was preceded in death by his parents and two sisters, Mary Francis Waters (infant) and Janet Ann (Waters) Followell and her husband, Sherrill Followell.
Roy Lee is survived by his brother, Lawrence “Larry” Waters of Peculiar, Missouri, two nieces, Cheryl (Followell) Mellot of Blue Springs, Missouri and Laura (Waters) Garber of Heston, Kansas and one nephew, Lawrence Joseph Waters of Harrisonville, Missouri.
Roy was a much-loved, hard-working, and enjoyable individual, who loved all his friends and co-workers at the Casco Area Workshop as well as his family, with whom he stayed in regular contact. Roy worked in the recycling program as well as almost every other job over his steady career at the Casco Area Workshop from 2006 to 2019. Roy had a ready laugh and an easy, laid back manner, making him very lovable and a pleasure to be around.
Roy loved taking care of his home, mowing the lawn, as well as general yard work, and gardening. He also kept his room very neat. He loved Elvis, Harley Davidson Motorcycles and Dukes of Hazard.
Roy also went on every date possible and talked almost daily with his long-term girlfriend, Jennifer Burton, whom he loved. They shared many things together over the past 10 years.
We will all miss Roy, as well as his easy manner and great personality.
We are thankful that he is now in heaven with Jesus.
