ZIEHM, Roy Alvin

ZIEHM, Roy Alvin

ZIEHM - Roy Alvin Our daddy, our warrior, our best friend, Roy Alvin Ziehm, went to be with the Lord Monday, December 14, 2015, in Denton, TX. His passing was peaceful and pain-free, and our hearts were filled with love as he flew as an angel to be with his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. We are proud of his tough fight to live and love, and are grateful that he is no longer in pain or suffering from his battle with esophageal stomach cancer and heart failure. Roy Alvin Ziehm was born September 8, 1953, in North Tonawanda, NY to Alvin "Sonny" and Lois Ziehm. Roy operated Green Thumb Landscaping in his young career. He then worked as a UPS driver and manager for 16 years. During the last decade he was dedicated to caring for his second family, Lois and Don Johnson, by landscaping and working the Johnson family ranch and making sure they always had a friend at their doctors' appointments. Roy was a passionate and avid scratch golfer. He was a mentor to many and had a heart of gold. His family was his greatest joy and treasure. Roy is survived by his life-long love, Sharon Pietrzykowski Ziehm, and his children, Sara Michelle Ziehm, Aaron Roy Ziehm, daughter-in-law Taryn Walker Ziehm, Ashley Ziehm Brown; son-in-law Bryan Brown; and grandchildren Alli, Jake, Carly, and Hannah. He also leaves behind his mother, Lois Ziehm, his sisters and brothers, Gloria Zemaitis, David Ziehm, Mark Ziehm, Brenda Ziehm, Elaine Joyce, Janette Clapsadle, and Karen Cowell. A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, December 19, at the Johnson Family Ranch, 5575 FM 1830 in Argyle, TX from 11 AM - 2 PM, and will continue at 4 PM at the VFW in Denton. Friends and family are invited to join in remembrance of him. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations go to The First Tee of Greater Dallas
