Angola, Indiana- Roy Smallwood, 62, passed away peacefully at his home on Friday, Sept. 2, 2011. Born in Bryan, Ohio on July 30, 1949, Roy became an enthusiast of fast cars, an accomplished drummer, a skilled marksman, a preparer of the perfectly grilled steak, a distinguished veteran of the U.S. Army and soon thereafter, a loving husband and nurturing father. Roy's passion for cars led him to a career utilizing his God-given talents to repair automobiles to perfection and later became a paint specialist rivaled by none. Further in his career, Roy became an award-winning consultative sales professional for automotive refinishing with BASF Corporation. He was known for his big voice that produced a gruff bark but thankfully no bite, due to his heart of gold. Roy is survived by his precious wife of over 41 years, Treasure Lilli, his son, George in Nashville, Tennessee, daughter-in-law, Colleen, grandson, Samuel, brother and sister, Mark & Karen, and three adoring grand-dogs - Bonham, Baylee and Louie. Roy - we love you, miss you, cherish the memories and celebrate your life - looking forward to joining you again someday, in the house of our Lord. Services will be at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2011 at Presbyterian Chapel of the Lakes. Visitation is from 6 to 8 p.m. today at Weicht Funeral Home, 207 N. West St., Angola.
