Roy Thomas “Roy T” Boddie
August 8, 1956 — September 29, 2023
On September 29, 2023, Roy Thomas “Roy T” Boddie was called to his Heavenly home. Roy T was born on August 8th, 1956. He was preceded in death by his loving mother, Catherine “Granny” Boddie, and his Daddy, William “Pugh Jo” Boddie.
Roy T was a loving husband, father, and a friend to many. He loved his family more than life itself. He was a retired pipeliner. He spent most of his adult life working in the pipeline industry. He attended Midway Baptist Church. He was known to always have plenty of various artifacts around. If you were ever needing a tool, an appliance, a trailer, or just about anything you could think of, he probably had it. If you ever had doubts about if Roy T agreed with what you had to say, he’d quickly let you know “that’s right” with a nod of his head if he did agree.
Those left to cherish the wonderful memories of Roy T are his wife, Teresia Boddie, sons, Eli T. Boddie and Kevin Kelley, daughter, Audi Henderson, his sister, Jean Cowan, Jean’s sons Wyatt and wife Josie and their daughter Victoria Cowan, and Jake and his wife Becky, and their sons Brayden, Ryley, Owen, and Liam Cowan, by his brother, Wesley Boddie and wife Vicki, their daughter Heather and husband Kevin Robinson, Heather’s son Austin Pike and his fiancée Madison, a host of grandchildren, extended family, and friends.
