Roy Squyres

October 25, 1946 — June 12, 2022

Roy T. Squyres, 75, died on June 12, 2022 at his home. Born in Oklahoma City on October 25, 1946, he moved to Phoenix, Arizona at the age of 4. He graduated from Cortez High School in Phoenix. He was drafted into the Army during the Vietnam War. He received the rank of Specialist 4 during his time of service and then was honorably discharged. He later attended Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia where he earned a degree in business. He worked at Allied Van Lines as a cross-country truck driver. He then began a career in sales at Review Office Products in Atlanta. After he accepted a job at Chatham Steel, Roy relocated to Savannah, Georgia, where he eventually opened his own carpet cleaning business, The Servant Company. Roy’s Christian faith was the cornerstone of his life. He became a Christian at First Baptist Church in Atlanta under Charles Stanley. He was active in the Christian Businessmen Committee of Atlanta. He later served as chaplain for the Savannah Braves baseball team. Roy was a long time member of Calvary Baptist Temple where he served in the choir and prayer team. Roy would go on to meet Michael Guido and become heavily involved in the Guido Evangelistic Association in Metter, Georgia. Roy’s relationship with Michael was one of the greatest joys of his life. Michael was a true father-figure, mentor, and friend to him. Because of Michael’s influence, Roy was inspired to start the Scriptural Seeds Ministries with a friend and receive his pastoral certification from Guido Bible College. Roy is preceded in death by his parents, Rayburn and Tela Squyres, as well as his companion, Tamra Lewis. He is survived by his son, Josh Squyres (Frances) of Los Angeles, California, daughter, Patience Long (Jonathan) of Belgrade, Serbia, grandchildren JJ, Pansy, Josiah, Asah, Hezekiah, and Judah, and brother, Ray Squyres of Pahrump, Nevada, as well as many spiritual family members who he ministered to. Roy will be greatly missed. He reunited with his son, Josh, after a 15 year absence. Josh, Frances, JJ and Pansy are so grateful for the past 12 years with Grandpop. Josh hopes this story of reconciliation inspires others to love and forgive. Memorial gifts can be made to the Guido Evangelistic Association in Metter, Georgia.
