Roy Hilbert Driver, 95 of Springfield, went to the Lord on January 8, 2023 as he was surrounded by family.
Roy met the love of his life, Betty Jane Driver (1928-2006) while attending school in Seymour, MO. After their marriage, they moved to New Jersey while Roy completed his service in the Navy. Together, they raised three sons and a daughter. Roy attended Second Baptist Church for many years with his wife Betty. After she passed, he started attending Ridgecrest Baptist Church while his health allowed him to.
During Roy’s work career, he worked as the manager of Consumer grocery store on south Campbell for 25 years and later moved one block over and became the general manager of McDonald’s at 501 W. Sunshine Street for 30+ years. After retiring from McDonald’s, he decided to drive the activity bus for Cambridge (independent senior living facility) where him and his wife, Betty, enjoyed many fun trips to the Branson shows and other various fun trips.
A military graveside service was held on Wednesday, January 11, 2023, at 11 am at Hazelwood Cemetery.
The funeral arrangements are being entrusted to Gorman Scharpf Funeral Home.
