Roy Edward Swinson was born June 10,1937 in Concord, North Carolina to the late Gordia Johnson Swinson and Lee Roy Swinson. He departed this life on May 24,2021 at Lower Cape Fear LifeCare.

Roy had a love for cars instilled in him by his father. He spent many years as an Automotive Salesman. He enjoyed boating, fishing, jet skiing, and the beach. He always had some kind of project in the works around the house. He took pride in fixing up his home or helping his daughter with her home. He also adored spending time with his grandchildren. They brought him pure joy.

Roy was a proud father to three daughters Tina Leonard, Sherri Moree of Lexington, and Ashley Lytle of Wilmington. He also had six grand children Maddie Dabney, Isaiah Moree, Ethan Moree, Bob Swinson-Rucker, Daniel Gregory and Pixie Lytle. He is survived by brother J.L.Swinson and sisters Beulah Stallings and Ethel Orrell.

Roy’s family is planning a celebration of life ceremony to be held at a later date.

    I have sweet memories of my uncle. He always had a twinkle in his eyes and quick witted. I know he loved his girls and grand children. He always called me "Sis" and I had to fight him off from getting the whole pecan pie at our reunions! Will love and miss you.
