Aug. 14, 1944 — Sept. 27, 2013
On Sept. 27, 2013, Roy Arthur Carver went peacefully to be with the Lord after a long battle with cancer, with family and friends by his side. He was born Aug. 14, 1944, in the home of his parents, Reynolds and Elvira on Pleasant Street in Placerville, Calif. He graduated from El Dorado High School in 1963.
In 2005 Roy retired from the City of Placerville, Public Works Department, after a 36-year career. He then enjoyed what he loved most: gardening with his wife of 45 years, Patricia Gregor-Carver, fishing, camping, playing poker, joking, pulling pranks, watching westerns and being with family and friends.
Roy is survived by his wife, Patricia; daughter, Kim Smith and her husband Scott and grandchildren, Travis and Deserae; daughter, Cindy Gray and her husband, Kevin and grandson, Austin; sisters, Aileen Ferreira and Elaine Murray; and brother, Kenny Carver, all of Placerville; not to mention countless family and friends who shared his journey through life.
Services will be held Oct. 19, at 11 a.m., in Shingle Springs, Calif., at Gold Country Baptist Church, with a reception to follow in the Fellowship Hall. Donations may be made to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation at JDRF.org; or the El Dorado High School Alumni, P.O. Box 1515, Placerville, CA 95667 (Tax ID No. 94-2217782).
