Roy Clough was one of those guys you have known forever and you just can’t get it through your head that he is gone now. We worked for Roy at DuPont and he was one of a kind. He always took doing a good job as something that was expected of him and he never let anyone down. We will miss Roy at our monthly DuPont Retirees’ Luncheons. Our blessings go out to Doris and the family. Roy will be missed, but he will never be forgotten. May Roy rest in peace.
