Peace be with you Roy


The world has lost a wonderful man, at truly great performer, & a dear friend of mine, Mr. Roy Clark.  He passed away Thursday, November 15th, 2018 due to pneumonia.  He was 85 years of age.  What an incredible 85 years it was, married to the same lovely lady for 61 years, several children, & a musical legacy to be envied by all.  He was beloved by his legions of fans, admired by his peers, & inspired anyone who wanted to play the guitar!  He was the 1st celebrity to build his own theater here in Branson, MO.  In October of 1989 the director & producer of Hee Haw came to Branson looking for new faces to be on their TV show.   They saw me performing with the Braschler Music Show & also at Silver Dollar City.  In 24 hours I was hired to be the newest cast member of, at that time, the longest running variety show on TV!  It ran for a total of 25 years!  We filmed 13 episodes in 2 weeks!  It was THE most exciting time of my career to work with these legends, plus all the guest stars!  Roy remained a true blue friend over the years & even filmed a video “shout-out” in my 2015 ‘Homer Lee & Friends Variety Show’!  Peace be with you friend!  Always, Terry ‘Homer Lee’ Sanders
