Roy Anthony Islas, also known as Tiger by his close family and friends, was born on November 9, 1976 in San Antonio, Texas to Raul and Angelina Islas. Roy entered eternal rest on Wednesday, April 13, 2022. He called San Antonio home his entire life and attended Madison High School and San Antonio College.

Roy was an extraordinary human who enjoyed getting to know people and wanted to help everyone in need. He loved family get togethers because to Roy, family was everything. He lived to make his wife and daughter happy. He was a chef at heart; enjoying grilling and making his famous briskets on nice weekends to share with his neighbors. He was also an enthusiast of unique beers and spirits. He shared a love of video games and stage productions with his daughter.

He is survived by his mother, Angelina Islas, and father, Raul Islas; loving wife, Lacy Islas; his beloved daughter, Anastacia Leigh Islas; Stepson Benjamin Hudson Jr.; Siblings, Ann Islas and Freddy Lopez; father-in-law, Ed McClure and mother-in-law, Charlene McClure; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Roy will be missed tremendously, but will live forever in the hearts of those who knew and loved him. His family is at peace knowing he is with the Lord and his loved ones in Heaven. They mourn and celebrate his life at the same time.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Roy’s Go Fund Me for the creation of his monument, something that will forever memorialize his life and legacy.

  11. CandleImageRoy “Tiger” was an amazing friend who had always loved food, family and singing. I lost touch with him physically when I moved away from San Antonio after graduating from Madison but, in the few years I knew him in high school he was always kind, compassionate and a true light that always seemed to shine when need the most. May He rest in peace and my condolences to his parents and family.

  12. Roy and I had cubicles next to each other several years ago. We used to cover for each other on Saturdays so we could leave early or come in late. Thanks for helping me nurse those hangovers a little longer each morning buddy. You’ll be missed.

  15. CandleImageStill doesn’t seem real. My heart breaks for my other family. Tiger was the 3rd brother to me growing up together ❤️ RIP

  16. Roy was one of the best friends you could ask for. He was not only that but became a brother to me. He was truly taken from us to early and will always be in our hearts. So many times in my life Roy was there for me when I needed someone the most and always there to lend a hand. I love you brother and we will one day meet again. You will forever remain in my memories of the times we have shared and will have a special place in my heart always.

  17. CandleImageI never worked directly with Roy but knew of him and met him through my husband and other work friends at Pace. Everyone always had something positive to say about him- and I think everyone who’s worked at a call center knows how rare that can be. He was kind, hilarious, and made some damn good BBQ. I’m so sorry for the family’s loss. Sebastian and I send our love.

  18. CandleImageOne of the best supervisors hands down. You always went above to help me, when I struggled so had with my little sister being sick. I truly can’t thank you enough for all you did. You will be missed love you Roy.

  19. I used to work with Roy at Pace, a call center which contracted for AT&T. Roy was a beloved figure within the leadership there. He was always supportive, always looked out for his people, and he always kept it real.

    His BBQ was legendary at the office, everyone loved buying his plates and encouraged him to open a food truck, it was just so good and you know he was proud of his work.

    I still remember the get together we went to for him when he found out he had cancer the first time. So many people from the office showed up. It showed how much we wanted to return that support he had shown us when we needed it. We wished so hard that Roy would pull through… in my heart there is a sadness knowing that someone so genuine, fun, and caring as Roy will be missed on this earth by so many people. I wish his family and friends the best.

  20. CandleImageMy condolences to Roy’s family and friends. May you find peace in knowing that he’s no longer suffering.

    Roy was one of the most kind and funny people I’ve ever had the chance to meet. He genuinely cared about you and your well-being. He was my supervisor at a job that none of us liked, but it was people like Roy that made it worth those long hours answering the phones at the office. I learned a lot from you and you always had my back. Thanks for pushing me to be a better employee and person. You became a mentor to me, even after I left that job, and I credit my current success to some of those lessons you taught me back then. Thanks for introducing me to some of the best wings in San Antonio. You always knew where to find the best food. I’m glad we got to hang out at your apartment and grab some pizza a while back. It was just like old times, as if no time has gone by since my last day working for you. I’m going to miss you, brother.
