Roy C. Pogue, Sr., 1918 ~ 2008
“Mr. Blue Eyes”

Roy C. Pogue, Sr., father, grandfather, great-grandfather, miner, gardener, and best friend, embarked upon his final journey, and passed on to a kinder place, July 20, 2008.

Roy was born on Nov. 2, 1918 in Goodman, Va., to Robbie Clay and Buela May Slagle-Pogue. He was the second of eight children who later ventured on to have a family of his own.

Roy had three children who continue to carry on his legacy through a number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Roy’s desire for adventure took him many places before making his final resting place in the beautiful Moab Valley.

His voice will forever echo in the hearts of those he held dear.

His cajoling spirit and steel blue eyes will be undoubtedly missed.

“Here’s to the Precious Present.”
