Michael's Uncle Roy passed away last week, unexpectedly. We were all shocked and are so sad. He was so interesting and smart and funny and kind. He always took such an interest in our family and supported us so much. We will miss him very much.
Here is some information about him from his memorial page.
Full Name: Roy Phillips "Bunky" Miers
Roy "Bunky" Miers was a true public servant who never knew a stranger. To know him was to love him. His smile was full of warmth and friendship and he always went out of his way to be gracious and kind to everyone he met.
He was born in Dumas Texas to Roy Samuel "Shorty" and Mary Miers. He remained in the Panhandle until the 1980s. He then spent over 25 years in Kansas City, Missouri where he had a large and wonderful circle of friends and was a very active volunteer with Meals on Wheels.
In 2005 Roy decided it was time to return to his true native Texas & and he moved to Sugar Land, Texas to be near his sister and brother-in-law.
Almost as soon as he unpacked his boxes he was already actively engaged in the Sugar Land Exchange Club.
Roy had many hobbies which kept him occupied. His garden looks like it came straight out of a magazine. His love of travel and different cultures led him all across the continent with many hilarious and amazing adventures to share.
Another one of Roy's favorite hobbies was family genealogy and as a result he has a large circle of first, second, third and fourth cousins who remember him fondly.
Anyone that knew Roy knew that Christmas was his favorite time of the year. It wasn't unheard of for him to have a Christmas tree in every room of his house. One of his greatest joys was to be able to help others who were less fortunate be able to celebrate this special day.
Due to the way that he lived his life; he made an amazing impact in the community; whether that was serving on the Board of Directors of the Sugar Land Exchange Club, helping out with the Santa's exchange, delivering meals for Meals on Wheels or registering volunteers for a blood drive. He was never one to sit at home and be idle and only felt fulfilled when he was helping others.
Because of his commitment to serving others the family asks that in leu of flowers you please donate to one of the charities on this website, or your own favorite charity.
