Obituary:
Leader-Times, Kittanning

d03a7-roy2bwilson2bobit
Roy “Pete” was nicknamed “One More Time” because he loved to go out to the VFW and dance on the weekends. He would dance every single dance (I remember him doing the same at family weddings), and when the band would announce that they were done for the night, he would holler out “one more time!”.

Most people knew my grandpap by the nickname Pete. They called him and his oldest son Roy “Pete and Re-Pete”.

Same day. In this one, Katherine was able to manage a smile, probably a difficult thing considering that she'd been suffering with cancer for awhile.
