Obituary

Daryl Lee Roy, 73, of Clarksburg, MA, died on October 18, 2020, at the Vermont Veterans Home in Bennington after a long battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease).

Daryl was born in North Adams, MA, the son of Lionel and Ethel “Pat” (Pekelder) Roy. Daryl attended local schools, graduated from St. Joseph’s High School in 1966, and received a Bachelor of Science degree from Western New England College.

Daryl was a US Army veteran and also served in the Vermont National Guard.

Daryl was the owner and operator of Berkshire Valley Auto Works (NAPA) in North Adams and NAPA of Wilmington, VT. Prior to that, he was in General Electric Company’s Manufacturing Management Program as a Project Manager for the Navy’s nuclear submarine program. He had also been a police officer in North Adams and Clarksburg, Chairman of the Clarksburg Selectmen, and served on many town and bank boards and committees.

In his youth, Daryl was an Eagle Scout and later became an accomplished skier, golfer, fisherman, scuba diver, hunter and marksman. He was an avid boating enthusiast, making many trips each summer with his family to fish on Lake Ontario and to explore the Thousand Islands on his beloved motorboat, “Babbette.” He obtained his Marine Captain’s License and was also a Merchant Marine qualified to commandeer freighters up to ten tons.

Daryl was a member of the Night Cruzers, holding yearly Cruise Night events at the North Adams NAPA store to raise funds for local charities. He was a master at reconditioning engines, including high-performance engines, and restoring classic trucks and cars. He received many National awards for his professional accomplishments and dedication to the automotive industry.

He was a communicant of St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church.

Daryl is survived by his wife, Mireille “Mimi” (Couture) Roy and his daughter, Danielle Monique Roy, her husband, Todd Keetch, and his grandson, Landon Keetch, of Belgrade, MT; a sister-in-law, Simone Susan Couture; a brother-in-law, Claude Couture; a niece, Kimberly Couture; a grand-nephew, Michael Gratton; an uncle, Rolland Roy; and many cousins in this area and across the country.
