  1. Nice tribute to uncle Roy! I remember the gold eagle necklace he wore. May he soar with eagles and rest in peace. Pam , Niece

  2. I have been neighbors to the Pfluger family for over 55 years. I can remember all the good times we had the water fights with my Grandma egging Roy and I on to see who would get the wettest. The fun we had in the greenhouse with all those geraniums getting the right red ones bugging the ladies in the garden dept. at Freddys. Seeing who could have the best flowers. It has been real hard these past few years to see my friend and garden partner lose interest in everything. I loved to tease him about those ducks he would shoot I would tell him I was praying for the ducks not him. Rest in peace my friend and tend the garden up above. Sheila

    I am so sorry to see that Roy has passed on. What a great guy. I will always remember his humor.He was a bright star to see everyday coming to work.

  5. Roy was a very special friend. We enjoyed his witty humor and he always had a way of making us feel at ease. He had so many topics to talk about that we were intent on every detail that he would tell us. Roy was a great family man.
    Roy loved to camp with his family and friends. His trailer traveled from Arizona to Montana.

    He loved his cabin and would look forward to duck hunting.

    He will be missed by all of us. He does live on in our hearts.
