Roy Barrios Jr was a distinguished veteran, visionary entrepreneur, passionate gardener and devoted family man, who leaves behind a legacy of achievement, love, and cherished memories. A proud serviceman, Roy served his country with honor in the United States Air Force before embarking on a successful career as a business owner. His entrepreneurial spirit and dedication led to the creation and successful management of a generational business that remains family owned today.

Roy’s love for nature and gardening led him to cultivate his beloved property in Hammond, LA, where he delved into the nursery business with fervor.

But above all his accomplishments, Roy found his greatest joy in his role as Paw Paw. He adored spending time with his family, sharing laughter, wisdom, and cherished moments that will forever be etched in their hearts.
