Roy Windham

Allen “Roy” Windham, 82, of Purcellville, Virginia, passed away on Monday, Dec. 21, 2020, after losing his battle with cancer. His loving wife and daughter were honored to be at his side.

Because of COVID-19 limitations, a private service will be held Jan. 8 at Purcellville Baptist Church.

Mr. Windham was born June 29, 1938, in Jonesboro, when Henry Thomas and Edna Merle Humes Windham gave birth to twin boys, Thomas Ray and Allen Roy, brothers who shared the special bond of brotherhood and friendship that only twins can know.

His childhood also was spent with adored big sister Gail and beloved younger brother Jerry.

Roy attended Hamilton public schools and graduated Hamilton High School. As a young man, he served in the US Army, along with his twin, stationed in beautiful Alaska, which he loved. He went on to work as an executive at the Xerox Corporation for more than 35 years, then retired.

He was a dedicated husband to his beloved wife Susie for 50 years.

He was a hero and best friend to his daughter, a loving brother, son and uncle, who was very proud of his siblings’ and their children’s accomplishments in career and family.

He was a good friend to many and loved his town and those in it. He was honest, loyal and cared for others and animals.

He enjoyed working on and bringing life back to old cars, driving his 1935 Ford to the car club shows and spending time at the town service station with his friends. He could fix and build just about anything. He is loved and will be missed beyond words.

Roy joins his parents Henry and Merle, twin brother Tom, niece Johana and previous daughter Kammie in Heaven.

He is survived by his wife Susie Parnell Windham of Leesburg, Virginia; brother Jerry Windham and wife Pat of College Station; sister Gail Windham of Manhattan Beach, California; sister-in-law Maria Windham of Fort Worth; and many aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, great-nephews and nieces and cousins.
