Roy Walden, a beloved member of the Pryor community, passed away on Sunday, January 28, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of compassion, faith, and love. Born on July 14, 1945, in Pryor, Oklahoma, Roy's life was filled with countless moments of kindness and joy that touched the lives of all who knew him.

Known for his warm smile and gentle nature, Roy's commitment to his calling as a minister extended far beyond the walls of any church. His ministry was one of love and acceptance, always offering words of solace to those in need and lending a helping hand whenever it was required. Roy's genuine care for others was evident to all who crossed his path. Throughout his life, Roy found great pleasure in various activities.
