Roy was born July 28, 1932 south of Apache, OK to Earl and Emma Scammahorn. He grew up in the Apache area, graduating from Elgin High School. Roy proudly served two years in the United States Navy on the aircraft carrier USS Bon Homme Richard.

Roy worked civil service at Fort Sill as a mobile equipment operator and retired after many years of service. He was a longtime member of First Baptist Church of Apache.
Roy will be remembered for being extremely loyal to his family and friends. Although he didn’t often say it, he showed his love and dedication through his acts of service.
