Roy Richard Slack, nicknames “Teen” “Pop” or “Papa”, age 81 of Aurora passed away July 23, 2016 peacefully at Denver Hospice after a long battle of Alzheimer’s and other health issue. Born in Kearney, Nebraska on March 4, 1935 the 13th child of 15 born to Charles and Laura (Reed) Slack. He is survived by his wife Elaine (Hanflet) Slack of Aurora, CO, his two children, daughter Tammy (David) Flageolle of Aurora, CO, son Phillip “Scooby” Slack of Aurora, CO, and two grandsons, Eric and Cody Flageolle of Aurora, CO. He is also survived by a sister Nancy Cox of Highlands Ranch, sister in laws and brother in laws and by many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents Charles and Laura Slack, seven brothers – Chester, Charles, Donald, Merl, Earl, Raymond and Riley and six sisters – Vera Tappan, Elnora Camp, Bertha Holt, Mae Humrich, Betty Eggers, and Frances Honse.
He married Elaine Hanflet on January 8, 1960 in Kearney Nebraska and they made their home in Colorado. He loved taking care of his yard, especially the roses of which there are dozens, which his family will continue to care for in his memory. He was always there when anyone needed help with just about anything. He loved it when Scooby would say “Dad come over and help me, would you.” and he would be right there. Of course Scooby’s friends would show up and they would say, “Hey Pop, let’s have a beer.” and the work would stop for the day. He also loved going to Tammy’s when she did in home daycare to see all the kids. He was more than just Eric and Cody’s Papa; he was all of the kid’s Papa.
