RIP Roy and thank you for the opportunities you afforded me at Best Western/Hour Time and Buccaneer Bay.

Rest peacefully Roy. Roy Meeks is the reason I became a hospitality professional. He gave me a chance to help manage his Best Western and Hour Time Resturant and Buccaneer Bay. I remain in the business and am grateful for my experience there. Thank you to Roy. My condolences to his family. He was such a tough but fun man to be around. Again Rest in Peace!

My heartfelt sympathies and prayers are sent to Carson, Cy, Garry and all of Roy's family and friends. I had the privilege to work with Roy for many years at the Radisson, Hour Time Restaurant, Best Western and Buccaneer Bay. He was a shrewd businessman...loyal to his staff...well-read...well-traveled...great story-teller...true friend. Above all, he loved Fran, his sons, daughters-in-law, grandchildren, family and friends. How appropriate that he would leave this world 15 years to the day that 'big-Fred' left us. Fred, Sr. was his 'partner-in-crime', and Roy remembered (and re-told) stories of all of their shenanigans. Roy, Fran, Fred and Rachel are finally back together. I can only imagine the party that they're having!

Roy was a friend and businessman associate for many years while I lived and worked in Lafayette. His unique personality and accommodating style will always remain a part of the business growth distinctions of the greater Lafayette communities. My sincerest condolences to Roy’s family and his many friends.
