He also has four remaining brothers in Pennsylvania, Richard, Randy, Ron and Rick Semmel. Roy was born in Leighton, PA to Anna and Robert Semmel, the middle child of seven boys.
Roy requested a simple obituary this is what he wanted written, he said “I was born April 27, 1943 and I was born again June 7, 1970. And I want all who know me and those reading this to know that Jesus Christ is still offering his salvation to anyone who comes. Revelation 3:20 tells us ‘Behold, I stand at the door and knock, anyone who opens the door and asks me in will be saved.’”
