RIP Roy you were the reason I watch the show. Honest but still funny probably without meaning to be. Hope his son is taken care of.

There is always someone who tries to make things about them & not the actual topic, right JR?

Anyways, Rest in Peace Roy. No matter what People say about you, you still have your fans…….

Pay no attention to J.R.. so ignorant s/he can’t tell the difference between “sow” and “sew.” The expression is “reap what you sow,” and you have reaped both unkindness and a total inability to spell.

Is spelling all you have? Why don’t you talk about how nice Roy was and how is was almost like Jesus? But then again, please don’t insult the son of God!

You, my friend (and I use the word loosely) are a total jerk. How dare you leave messages like this for his family and friends to see.

Making a comment about Roy being a jerk is so disrespectful to his family and friends and also to fans who liked this man. No one knows just how tough you have to be sometimes with the shippers and receivers in the trucking industry because heaven forbid if you’re a minute late on a delivery and they make you sit there all day long until they decide when to unload your truck. I’m a trucker’s wife so I speak from experience. Everyone should respect truckers more than they do cuz they deliver every single thing that makes our lives more comfortable and enjoy our lives and keep us fed while they give up time from their familes. Roy might not have been one of my fave truckers on this show but I did like him and respected him. I just found out about Roy’s death this morning after watching Shipping Wars. Condolences to his family and friends and I hope that his son Travis or his girlfriend is taking care of his kitty.

Apache Angel, my comment about Roy was not directed at you but at JR. Thanks for posting what you said. No one has the right to judge another person especially someone that you do not personally know.

Sorry, the man treated people lime crap on the show, nothing has changed because be died. Live your life right and you will have people say nice things about you. His family knows what he is and doesn’t care what is said here. All of you need to grow up, this isn’t grade school!

Not a nice thing to post JR….Roy was liked by so many people. Show some respect to those surviving him.

You ask for respect, be didn’t show it, and he didn’t get it back. He would be the first to tell you that! He did do a couple of nice things for people, I think he even hauled a load for free, but because people are a little different, doesn’t mean you should be a jerk to them.

I told it like it was. If a guy is a jerk in life, then death changes nothing. On the other hand you have told me to go to hell and you know nothing about me. Do you want to be the one to try to arrange meeting my meeting in hell, because I will guarantee you one thing, I am up for you trying it thumper?! I don’t hide behind a screen name. Be careful who you piss off.

If you were directing your comment to J.R………………………This is what is wrong with him: He is a total jerk, probably a big nobody, jealous of the fact that Roy was on a widely watched t.v. show. That is just to name a few of the things wrong………………….On one more he is very disrespectful to all.

Funny that you think you can see it in.me but not Roy. Many people tell me I am one of the nicest guys they have ever met. I don’t bash dead people. I made a comment that people are talking about how great he is now that he is dead. People seem to always say that about dead people, even if they were thieves, killers, drug dealers, bullies, etc…. Because they are dead doesn’t change who they were in life. Again, I also said Roy did some nice things on occasion so get a life!
