Roy Dwayne Cofer II

Roy was born on June 19, 1948 in Water Valley, Mississippi. He was the son of Roy Dwayne Cofer Sr. and Eva Mae Melton Cofer. He married Rebecca Ann Smith in 1987. Roy owned and operated Roy’s Trailer Repair Shop. He enjoyed hunting, cookouts, going to his cabin in St Paul, he loved his old cars and trucks, going to auctions and especially having people come to visit. Roy had a great heart, always “adopting” many as his children.

Roy loved his family with his whole heart. He was an honest man that considered a man’s word and hand shake as good as his signature. Roy has left a big foot print in Trailer Repair business.

True friendship was very important to Roy. He always said it was hard to come by, he didn’t care if you wore a 3 piece suit or dirty work clothes.

He is survived by his wife, Becky Cofer of the home; Two sons, Roy “Haden” Dwayne Cofer III of the home Robert Janes of Springdale; six daughters, Regenia Magdaleno of Ft Smith, Ellen Glenn of Tupelo, MS, Amanda Cofer of Tupelo, MS, Samantha Breedlove of Springdale, Magen Poolaw of Anderson, MO, and Heather Oropeza of Springdale; two brothers, Carlis Cofer of Abbeville, MS and Jimmy Cofer of Water Valley, MS; five grandchildren and four great grandchildren; Roy had a special bond with Angela Elliott & Leeann Methany and was fortunate enough that his boys at the shop are his son’s and he loved them the same as his other children.

He was preceded in death by his parents, one son, Joseph Lorne Cofer, and two sisters, Anne Mae Jones and Sue Ellen Cofer.

Becky and family, Roy was one of a kind as everyone knows. You and Roy have always been wonderful to me and my family.
He was someone to go to for great advice and would always tell me I could always accomplish anything as long as I put your heart and mind into it.
Roy will be sorely missed.

Love, peace and comfort be with you all.

Roy was the most honest and non greedy person I have ever dealt with in the trucking industry. He always stood by his word and even those times he could have easily made a few extra bucks on a repair he would not do it and just charged a more than fair price. He has really left a name in the trailer repair business and he will be greatly missed! Becky you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
