Roy Donnell Anthony was born August 5, 1959 to the late Mildred Cain and Evander Anthony. He attended local schools and graduated from Wetumpka High School Class of 1977. He worked at Collier Ford for nearly 40 years until his health failed. He was a kind-hearted, humble man with an infectious smile. Roy enjoyed being in the great outdoors, spending time with family and friends, working on his classic Ford trucks and was an avid University of Alabama football fan. He departed from us peacefully and entered eternal rest on September 11, 2022.
