Nov. 26, 1923 — Dec. 4, 2012
Roy Arthur Musgraves was born in Checotah, Okla., to Arthur and Mary Musgraves. He passed away peacefully on Dec. 4, 2012, in Sacramento, Calif. He was the loving husband of Wanda Musgraves of Shingle Springs, Calif.; and the cherished father of Suzanne Robertson Taylor (David) of Thousand Oaks, Calif., Marilyn Weitzel (Verl) of San Jose, Calif., Janice Miguel (Steve) of San Jose, Skip Musgraves (Signe) of Salt Lake City, Utah, and the late Steve Capelli of Oxnard, Calif. He also leaves behind his grandchildren, Robbie, John, Jennifer, Kelly, Sean, Bryce, Angel, Paige, Holly, Jackson, Jennifer and Julia; and great-grandchildren, Jemma, Nicklaus, Tyler, Stevie, Emma, Sara, Jack, Chris and Olivia.
Roy was a 32-year resident of Shingle Springs, Calif. After owning his own accounting firm for many years in Thousand Oaks, he enjoyed working in Shingle Springs for Jim Wilson at the then El Dorado Sports Club and driving the school bus for Buckeye School District. He was an avid tennis player and an occasional golfer. He also played football for Oklahoma A & M (now Oklahoma State) in the era prior to the advent of facemasks. He was a proud graduate of that institution. He was a World War II veteran and very proud of his American Indian heritage.
Roy will be sorely missed by all who were fortunate enough to have known him, but will be remembered fondly at family celebrations where his spirit is sure to carry on for years to come. A memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Wounded Warriors Project, P.O. Box 758516, Topeka, Kansas 66675.
