On September 5, 2017, Roy William Claflin, age 77, left this earth suddenly to be with his Lord. He is survived by Shirley, his loving wife of 26 years, 5 children, 14 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. He is predeceased by his daughter.
He was born to James and Hazel Claflin on November 10, 1939, in Ellisburg, New York. He lived and worked many places and had differing jobs in his lifetime, but was most proud of his service to our country. He was retired from the Air Force, loving it so much, he tried to interest all his grandchildren in serving as well.
He had many hobbies and enjoyed little getaways but his grandchildren and great-grandchildren were his pride and joy. One of his favorite things to do towards the end, was to have breakfast with the guys from church, including his adopted grandson and pastor, Kevin Wright.
He was loved and will be missed dearly by many people because he touched many lives.
