He was born in Laurens, SC on August 12, 1932, to Dolphus E. Roy and Ola Mac Carley Burgess. He graduated from Laurens High School in 1950 and later met the love of his life, Evelyn, on a blind date in 1952.

He was a long-time member of Taylors First Baptist Church where he served as
an usher for almost 50 years.

He was an avid fisherman, loved NASCAR, Chevrolets, and his beloved South Carolina Gamecocks. He also enjoyed making photos of family and leaves behind many precious photographs taken over the years that his family will cherish forever.

He loved working outside whether it be in his yard that resembled a golf course or in his garden that he used to bless family and friends.

He was an intelligent man and could fix anything. If there was something that needed fixing, he?d figure out a way to do it. He got great satisfaction from helping family and friends whenever possible whether it be working on their car, helping fix an appliance, or offering a helping hand to meet whatever need he could. He paid incredible attention to detail and always kept his cars and yard spotless.

Despite all of this, his greatest love was for his family. He loved them with all his heart and never hesitated to make sure that they knew that. He was their biggest supporter, nothing made him prouder than his children and grandchildren. He loved spending time with them and never missed an athletic event or performance that they were a part of. The lessons he taught them on helping others and solving problems will be remembered forever.
