Royce Edward Lockwood, 63, of Spearsville, Louisiana, went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on January 12, 2021 after a brief illness that he valiantly fought.
Royce was born in Delhi, Louisiana on September 18, 1957 to Guy Lockwood and Nelda Graham Lockwood. Royce was a graduate of Farmerville High School, class of 1975.
