God surely did bless Roy and his family. I plan to meat him in heaven one day. He was a blessing to many. I still miss him as an adult.He was a true champion in my eyes.

Roy Rogers was born in 1911, which would make him too young to serve in WW1. By the time WW2 came around, he was 30 years old, so likely would neverhave been drafted,
