Passings: Roy Menzel '38

Roy Menzel '38 passed away April 14 in his life-long home of Stevens Point, WI.

Menzel, a DP sportswriter from 1934-1936, was 95. He worked in marketing communications and community relations for Sentry Insurance for more than 20 years before forming his own PR consulting company. He was active in numerous service organizations in his hometown, and received several Distinguished Citizen Awards from area groups. He is survived by his wife of 71 years, Margaret, and seven sons.

One of his sons, William Menzel, wrote of his father's Penn pride. "He was the Spoonman that year [1938], and the spoon was proudly displayed on his casket at the funeral."
