Meet Roy

Roy is special to our community as he is the first resident that signed up to join Legacy Reserve. Roy made the decision to join us a little over a year prior to our opening. Roy grew up in Lexington, KY where his family owned a country store. Roy was a financial executive. His hobbies include cooking, music, traveling and volunteering.

When asked what he likes about Legacy Reserve, Roy said, “I love having the freedom to enjoy life. With not having the responsibility of keeping up with a house, I am able to focus my time on my hobbies both inside the community and outside of Legacy Reserve. I’ve met some wonderful new friends here and love hosting my other friends at the community. Some have even joined me here and moved into Legacy Reserve. I do love the flexible dining options with delicious meals always being available”. We love having Roy be a part of our community!
