Roy Ervan Reusze Jr.

(September 8, 1952 – August 30, 2023)

Roy Ervan Reusze Jr., aged 70, passed away on August 30, 2023, surrounded by his loved ones. He was born on September 8, 1952, and his memory will forever live in our hearts.
Roy was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend. On December 19, 1970, he married the love of his life, Kathy Reusze, and together they built a life filled with love and cherished memories. He is survived by his loving wife, Kathy, as well as their three children: Ron Reusze, Debbie Marshall, and Kelly Dugger. His legacy also includes three beloved grandchildren: Jennifer Dugger, Derek Marshall, and Kyle Marshall.
Roy was a caring brother to Shirley Knutson-Fuller, Leonard Reusze, and Joseph Reusze. He cherished the bonds of family and had a deep love for his siblings.
Throughout his life, Roy was a skilled and dedicated worker. He worked as a mechanic, welder, and fabricator for United Water Trucks & Son, Inc., where his expertise was highly regarded. His commitment to quality craftsmanship and his strong work ethic were evident in all he did. He also played a vital role in the construction of the East Dam for the Diamond Valley Lake in Hemet, California, while working for the Kiewit Corporation. His contributions to these projects left a lasting impact on the surrounding communities.
Roy’s life was a vibrant blend of dedication to work and a deep passion for hobbies. His enthusiasm for motorcycle riding filled his days as he ventured down countless open roads. His innate love for mechanics and fabrication drove him to craft various cars, motorcycles, and even a sand rail within the confines of his garage, where his skill and inventive spirit shone through in every project he embraced.

Beyond his garage, Roy’s adventurous spirit extended into the great outdoors. Camping became one of his treasured pursuits, a means to forge enduring memories with cherished family and friends. Roy will be remembered for his sense of humor, his infectious laughter, and his ability to bring joy to any gathering. His memory will forever live on in the hearts of those who had the privilege of knowing him.

    I want to mention a day in Desert Hot Springs, Ca. When Kathy & Roy, Bill and Helen, and Jim and myself all went out to play. We had Roy’s hand built Sant-buggy & Bill’s buggy as well. After we had such fun playing all day the “boys” decided they would go out and buy us some beer! Then they took the scenic route to where we were camping for the day! Well since Jim had a full length leg cast on, he tired fairly easily, so ask Roy if he’d like to drive down off of the plateau? And Roy being very obliging said yes, he would be glad to drive down. So Jim and Roy saw Bill tinkering with his sand-buggy and thought they take the quickest route and accidentally drove off the plateau flying down a proximately 20 foot drop, but fortunately in the desert the wind blows a lot and there was quite a bank of loose sand at the very bottom of that plateau, Reusze buggy had one front wheels weld that didn’t hold up. Other then that. Nothing went wrong. I don’t think a drop of beer was spilt. And they laughed all the way back to tell us gals about it and then take us to show us where it happened. Those guys could have a wonderful time, doing anything. God bless them all. Ronny you were there, but were so young you didn’t go on the beer run! Jan Welch

    I'd heard many stories about you, but I only had the chance to spend one weekend with you. What a weekend! You were lively, hilarious, and full of energy. I will never be able to see a sizzling fajita platter the same way! Although you will be missed by many, I am certain there are many stories that will live on for years to come.

    I will miss you, Roy. I am your daughter in law but you treated me as a daughter. We had adventures in California, Arizona, and Florida. You took me on my first motorcycles rides. We cruised through the Arizona desert and down route 66. I will always remember to be prepared and bring “pocket cookies”. I’ll toast with Starbucks in your memory. Your sense of adventure and fun lives on.
