Beloved husband and father and brother, Roy Marcus of Greybull WY passed away unexpectedly Friday 20 September 2019 at the age of 69.  

Roy was born 27 March 1950 in Greybull to Emil and Adella (Scott) Marcus. A 1968 graduate of Basin High School, Roy joined the United States Navy in 1969. He served as a Construction Mechanic 3rd class until 1972, including postings in Okinawa, Japan and Rota Spain. Upon returning home he also served in the Wyoming National Guard. On December 22, 1972 he married Jean Jones of Greybull, daughter of Fred Jones of Greybull and Carole (Shalet) Levine-McManus of Chicago, IL. Two years later, on December 22, 1974, Roy and Jean were sealed for eternity in the Provo Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Provo, UT.

Together Roy and Jean welcomed three sons and one daughter into their family. In addition, they welcomed multiple exchange students into their hearts and homes in Basin and Greybull.

Roy was previously employed by Wyo-Ben Inc., LaMax Construction (28 years) and most recently Copper Creek Construction.

Roy was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and held various callings within the church. He was also a member of Gear Grinders tractor club and an avid rock-hound. He was well known as a kind and caring man, with great love for animals and true friendship for his many coworkers.

Roy is survived by his loving wife of 46 years Jean of Greybull; his son Rodney of Otto, Son Brian (Kate) of Randallstown, MD, son Patrick of South Jordan, UT, and daughter Lisa of Greybull. Also brother George (Linda) of Otto, Robert (Carolyn) of Ten Sleep and Steva (Rick) Dooley of Basin and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

He is preceded in death by his parents Emil and Adella (Scott) Marcus previously of Basin.
The family will be receiving from 10 to 11 am at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 400 Hwy 20, Basin, WY with memorial service with military honors to follow at 11 am. Following the service there will be a reception at the church. In lieu of flowers the family asks  that contributions be made to a Memorial Fund in Roy’s honor at Security State Bank.

The Family would like to thank Scott Nauman, Roy’s many co-workers past and present, the Doctors and Staff of South Big Horn County Hospital and the Staff of Haskell Funeral Home and all the friends and family who have supported them in this difficult time.

Dear Jean and Family: Sorry to hear about Roy. Roy was a good guy, always hard working! Just like you folks donating your tractor, trailer, and sign for the Class of 1968 to ride in the Big Horn County Fair parade in Basin last year. Roy was always willing to help! And, that will be my memory of him. With our sympathy, Debbie and Larry Johnson
