I was Roy Jones dentist for several years. We became friends and I was able to learn about Roy his absolutely incredible life and his humble nature. For someone who had traveled the globe and affected so many people in his life he was never one to speak of himself. Roy always gave all the glory to his children and his wives. He was a gentleman and a man of God. I was able to have lunch with him on occasion and finally got him to open up about all of the adventures of his life which were many. I told Roy he should write a book about his life and if he wasn’t willing to do it, I would. I will miss him. He was a wonderful man. May he rest in peace.

Sincerely,

Mike Palmer, DMD
