Carlos M. Royo

Published 5-5-13

AMARILLO, TX — No service is planned at this time for Carlos M. Royo, 68, of Amarillo, Texas. Arrangements are by LaGrone Blackburn Shaw Funeral Directors of Amarillo, Texas.

Carlos was born Sept. 30, 1944, and died Thursday, April 25, 2013.

He obtained his undergraduate degree from the University of Florida and his master’s and Ph.D. in chemical engineering from Tulane University.

He demonstrated extreme dedication and competency throughout his career while working for Occidental Petroleum and Continental Resources.

Carlos enjoyed golf, racquetball, sailing, travel, fishing and tennis, but had great disdain for fiscal irresponsibility, heavy forestation on golf courses, and jewelry stores.

For six years, Carlos fought a courageous battle against Multiple System Atrophy. He faced his illness with unwavering positivity and an amazing sense of humor that enriched all those around him. Carlos felt strongly about organ donation and decided to lose his mind in Lubbock, Texas, by donating his brain to the Garrison Institute on Aging.

Surviving are his ever-cleaning and loving wife Stephanie, his bio-engineered, mini-me daughter, Kristin Crowley, and the greatest golfer Carlos had ever seen in person, her husband John.

Memorials may be made to the Garrison Institute at Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Texas.
