Roy A. Reimer Memorial Scholarship

Roy Reimer was drawn to his future wife (Joyce), in part, by his fascination with her organ/piano playing. Once they were married, he began a life in education and she in music, raising four children who shared their love of learning and music. Along the way, Roy provided for his children’s private lessons, instruments, music camps and much toward their college education, always encouraging their musical and educational growth and showing great pride in their accomplishments. Roy was called home to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on May 9, 2008. The Reimer family looks forward to the continuation of Roy’s legacy, supporting and celebrating Calvin string students for generations to come.
