Roy Herman Kellerman was born in Macomb County, Michigan back in 1915. After graduating from high school, he worked for the Dodge division of Chrysler. In 1937, he was sworn in as a trooper for the Michigan State Police. Just before Christmas in 1941, he joined the Secret Service in Detroit.
In 1942, he was a permanent fixture at the White House. In 1965, he was promoted to “deputy special in charge”. He retired from the Secret Service in 1968 as an assistant administrator. He died in 1984, he was 69.
What you may not know about Roy is that he was in the front passenger’s side of the presidential limousine with President Kennedy in Dallas. I saw the photo, he was chastised for not covering Kennedy’s body with his own. It took only 6 seconds to Oswald to fire the shots. No way would he have had time to do what was expected. Take a look at the photo and see if you agree with me or not.
