William was the son of the late Annie Mae Barksdale. At an early age, William was baptized and became a member of Forest Baptist Church in Meherrin, VA.

He served in the United States Army, in February 1977 and was honorably discharged. He worked as a custodian at Hampden Sydney College. In his free time he loved to go fishing, working on his cars, gardening and sitting on the porch enjoying the breeze. Roy loved and was loved by many. He was a great father, friend and confidant to many and will be truly missed.
