Roy M. Spear, age 85, died on February 5, 2020 in his home at WellHaven Senior Living in River Falls, WI. Roy was born the son of John and Sena (Signe) Spear on June 13, 1934 in South Dakota. He served in the South Dakota Army National Guard and US Army during the Korean Conflict and was a member of the Fletcher-Pechacek American Legion Post 121 in River Falls, WI. His membership in the Moose Lodge was also a source of pride and enjoyment. Roy was an avid sports fan and never missed a Green Bay Packers or Milwaukee Brewers game. His love for golf never ended and he always looked for courses to play no matter where he was at.
