The youngest of two sons, LeRoy “Roy” Gordon Wilson was born to the late Curtis and Lillian Wilson in Los Angeles, CA on December 18, 1928. Roy was a “beach kid” his whole life and was fond of days spent at the ocean’s edge growing up with his late brother, Dick. Roy met his wife of 59 years, Doris, through a friend in his late teens. They instantly fell in love and were married October 2, 1948. Roy was a devoted husband and family man; he and Doris raised five children together in the Redondo Beach, Los Angeles, and Newport Beach areas. 32 years ago, they moved down to the Balboa Peninsula, where they have enjoyed living within walking distance of the majority of their children and grandchildren. Roy was often seen riding his bike through the neighborhood, greeting friends and family and making friends along the way. He was always the first to ask how others were doing and was constantly looking for a way to help out friends in need.
