Roy was a devoted Teamster (Local 200) for over 30 years, driving trucks for Express Freight Lines. Roy’s true passion was music. He was an accomplished accordion player for nearly 70 years of his life. He was the band leader of “The Polka Dots”, a Wisconsin Polka Band that entertained at weddings, festivals, and parties for decades. Even after retiring from the music scene, Roy’s “Polka Jams” in the backyard of his Menomonee Falls home were legendary, drawing musicians from all over the state.
