Visitation will be held at 7:00 PM on Thursday, May 29, 2008, at Christ's Sanctified Holy Church. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions be made to CSHC, Church Home, P. O. Box 1376, Perry, GA 31069. A man of great integrity, Papa Roy loved God, his family, and his church. He lived by Proverbs 22:1, "a good name is rather to be chosen than great riches". His charming, friendly presence will be greatly missed by many. He never met a stranger; when you were in his presence, you knew you had a friend. He moved to the Church Campground from Jacksonville, FL in 1992. An entrepreneur at heart, Papa Roy spent his life supporting and promoting Christ's Sanctified Holy Church as a faithful member. Papa Roy is survived by one sister, Ella Mae Thomas; 4 sons, LaRoy Slappey of Jacksonville, FL; Tommy and Peggy Slappey of Braselton GA; Wayne and Pam Slappey of Hoschton, GA; and Charles and Vickie Slappey of Lawrenceville, GA; 11 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren. Roy was preceded in death by his loving wife of 61 years, Agnes B. Slappey. Services are entrusted to Watson-Hunt Funeral Home of Perry, GA. Please sign the online register at
