Roy Pyatte

Roy Nelles Pyatte, 80, lost the fight with emphysema on Sept. 2, 2011, in Susanville, Calif.

Roy was born in Pineola, N.C., in 1931 to Sudie Phillips Pyatte and Warsaw Pyatte, both preceding his death. In 1947 Roy came to Concrete and soon married Beverly Keith from Everett. They raised four children in Concrete as Roy worked at the cement plant. In 1971 Roy and Beverly moved to Mt. Vernon where Roy ran his own business, Roy’s Phones and Things. After a divorce in 1985, Roy found Del Young in 1994. Del and Roy spent 17 years as snowbirds spending winters in Yuma, Ariz., and summers at Del’s home in Susanville, Calif.

Roy is survived by his sister, Anne Postill, Tumwater, Wash.; and all four children, Jan Pyatte, Jefferson City, Mo.; Jo Gregory, Olympia, Wash.; Keith Pyatte, Alger, Wash.; and Cindy Attar, Sunnyside, Wash.; as well as four grandchildren.

A remembrance and memorial service will be held on Sept. 24, 2011, at a Mt. Vernon location to be announced soon. All who knew Roy will be welcome to attend.
