Obituary of Roy Arthur Latimer

Please share a memory of Roy to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Psalms 37:23

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and He delights in his way.”


Roy Arthur Latimer was born on October 1, 1938, in Anderson, South Carolina.   He spent his early childhood in between Anderson and Baltimore, Maryland after the death of his mother, Nellie Lomax when he was 2 years old.  In 1955, he graduated from Paul Lawrence Dunbar High School in Baltimore.

After High School, he joined the United States Air Force where he served honorably for four years.  During his service in the military, he met the love of his life, Viola Roberts, of Monahans, Texas and they were married on July 30, 1960.   They then moved to New York City in 1961.

Together in New York City, Roy and Viola Latimer had four sons where he worked as an insurance salesman and then joined the United States Postal Service as a letter carrier.  After a distinguished career in the postal service, he retired in 1992.

Roy enjoyed 43 years of marriage to Viola. As a loving husband and father, Roy enjoyed electronics, fishing and most of all spending time with his family. 

Roy is survived by his three sons, Ronald Latimer, Russell Latimer and Roland Latimer (LaShunda), all of Dallas, TX. 

Roy was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Viola Latimer and his second oldest son, Richard Latimer.
