Roy Gerard Mytinger January 10, 1959 – April, 16, 2011

Roy was born the fourth child and only son to LeRoy and Flora Mytinger in Newport, Rhode Island. He attended Middletown High School and Santa Clara University where he majored in civil engineering.

He was a devoted son to his parents, a loving and caring brother, and an amazing uncle to Natalie, Joel, Jeri, Rico, and Troy. Roy was a special uncle and father figure to his nephew, Troy. He taught Troy how to be a respectful and caring young man. To his sisters, Marianne, Paula, and Wanda he continued to display a sense of humor and taught them how to find bright spots during his darkest days.

One of Roy’s passions was cars. He enjoyed restoring cars to their original pristine shape, the most famous being his 1967 Shelby Gt 500. He was considered a perfectionist and his cars were premier examples. He was a member of the Saddleback Mustang Association and the Cobra Owners’ Club of America where he grew close with many friends.

Another passion of Roy’s was watching hockey. He started watching his nephew and was hooked, wondering why he ever enjoyed baseball. He has been an Anaheim Ducks season ticket holder since 1993, and despite his illness, continued to enjoy Ducks’ games with friends and family. Determined to continue his fight, Roy attended a Ducks’ playoff game the evening preceding his death.

Roy was hired by Foundation Pile, Inc. as a civil engineer in 1981, where he worked for 23 years until Lou Gehrig’s disease forced his retirement. Foundation Pile, Inc. will always be endeared in the hearts of the Mytinger/Dufault family for their never-ending love and support to Roy in his journey battling Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Roy will forever live in our hearts as a son, brother, and friend.

A celebration of Roy’s life will be held at Saddleback Church on Saturday, April 30, 2011 at 11:00 AM.

O’Connor will deliver flowers gifted to family to Roy’s service.

  1. Roy,

    You will forever be missed, but not grieved for. You were a noble man, especially of hockey and hot rods. I am sure you are in heaven now driving to the ice rink in your Shelby. Be sure to watch down on me and all the boys, and keep us knuckleheads out of trouble. I miss you.

    Much love,

    Steve Coonan Jr.
