Roy Lee Woodcock, 87, of Rocky Point passed gently from his earthly life Monday, July 8, 2019 at his home surrounded with love by his family.
He was born August 9, 1931 in Duplin County, the son of the late Joseph Floyd and Thelma Merritt Woodcock.

Roy Lee was a retired pipefitter with Babcock & Wilcox Company. He was a faithful member of Moores Creek Baptist Church.
Roy Lee was a man of faith and integrity who loved his family. He was a wonderful husband, daddy, granddaddy and Grandpappy to his great grandchildren. Reading his Bible daily and sometimes more frequently, working in his yard, visiting with family and friends were happy times that Roy Lee enjoyed. Tiger and Sass, Roy Lee’s canine companions will greatly miss him. Most importantly, Roy Lee taught us and leaves with us the importance of faith, family and friendship.
