Born December 16, 1952, in Burlington, he was the son of Donald Alvin Redd and Betty Marie Webster Smith. He met the caregiver of his life, Claudetta Lee Tucker and they spent over 50 years together. 

He was a 1971 graduate of Burlington High School. He also attended many classes over the years at Southeastern Community College.  

Roy worked for the Iowa Army Ammunition Plant until 2019.

He was a member of the Burlington Gym, Burlington Eagles Club and the Gentleman's Club. Roy enjoyed watching TV, especially sports. He had a passion for grilling and would be called on by many local churches to help them with events, since he was the grill master.
