Roy T. Companey, proud family man and friend to many, passed away on Jan. 1 at age 89.

Roy was born to Pauline (nee Kowalsky) and Roy J. Companey on Dec. 26, 1930.
In January of 1949, Roy received his diploma from Lakewood High School, and was proud to call himself a (January) ‘49er. Seven years later, he graduated from Western Reserve University with his Juris Doctorate. For over 30 years, he was a Civil Servant in the Cuyahoga County Courts probate division.
Outside of the courthouse, Roy volunteered for St. Vincent de Paul Society, tended to his garden and swung on the golf course.
He was an avid supporter of Notre Dame for all of his life and considered himself a sub alumni of the University. Lou Holtz once referred to him as the “unofficial photographer” of Notre Dame, as he shared many of his photos with Lou Holtz himself.
In addition to his love for the Irish, Roy supported his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren in all of their outside activities - football, volleyball, baseball, and basketball.
