Roy Caffarel was born January 6, 1932 in Port Allen, Louisiana. He graduated from Catholic High School in Baton Rouge in 1950. After attending LSU for a year he moved to New Orleans where he was employed by Delta Airlines until enlisting in the Air Force during the Korean War. After his service he decided to relocate to Southern California, where he became a real estate agent and met his partner Bob with whom he began a 45 year relationship. Eventually they moved to the Seattle area, operating a small business, before settling for several years in Lakeport, California, also, running their own business. After retiring they spent seven adventurous years on the road in their RV travelling around the country before their final move to Palm Springs in 2002. With Bob’s passing Roy entered into an 18 year relationship with new partner Michael. They were active members in Front Runners and Boots In Squares with Roy returning to work for Palm Springs Follies for a number of years and then becoming a health care worker until illness forced him to retire once again. He passed away at home on December 28, just short of his 91st birthday. With his unique personality and sense of style, he will be sorely missed by friends and family.
