March 10, 1943 - November 26, 2017

He was born in Forest City Arkansas on March 10, 1943 to Steve and Eddie Mae Yarbough. He worked at Midwest Aluminum until they closed down and then was employed at Honey Bear Canning until retirement. Roy enjoyed living life to the fullest by fishing, barbequing, and made sure his grandkids always kept him company. He loved being outdoors with his grandkids, teaching them how to rake leaves, drive the lawn mower, anything to keep them outside having fun because he knew how much they enjoyed spending time together.

He is survived by his wife Marilyn Yarbough, sister Freddie Mae Yarbough, brother Arthur Yarbough, daughter Shyann Douglas, three step children Patricia White, Claude Thomas, Jr., and Robert Thomas, ten grandchildren, Kyla Thomas, Eric White Jr., LaTreece Thomas, Ethan Layman, Kobie Thomas, Camden Thomas, Mary Thomas, Mia Thomas, Robert Thomas, Jr., And Kiauna Clark, five great-grandchildren Markell Morgan, Damien White, Makih Thomas, Aiden Jackson, and Amelia McCormick. Anyone who knows Roy knows his grandchildren were his world. Roy was a very loving, compassionate, caring man who will be missed dearly until we meet again.
