From Roy's Daughter ... He lived to be 2 weeks short of his 85th Birthday :)

As Lt. Roy D Adcock's daughter, I've heard many stories from my dad and have gathered lots of information. There were two Roy Adcocks in the 445th bomb group. The last two paragraphs of the second Roy Adcock belong in the top article as those were the men in my dad's crew. The bottom Roy has Roy Dale's death date and location. Roy Dale Adcock lived to be 84, two weeks short of his 85th birthday.
