Roy was born on July 19, 1947, to Frederick “Fritz” and Elda (Westermann) Dierking on the family farm.  In 1965, he graduated from Marysville High School.  After high school, he began working at City Sewing in Marysville until he was drafted into the National Guard in Colorado.  In 1969, he was discharged and upon his return home, he worked for Strader Drilling and farmed.  When his dad retired, Roy took over the family farming operation.

In his free time, Roy enjoyed a variety of hobbies. He loved to go on fishing trips and hunt racoons.  Roy also found enjoyment in country cruising and watching his cows.  When he wasn’t outside, he was watching sports or an old western show.

Preceding him in death were his parents and brother, John Dierking.
