Roy Buhl was born in Cordova, Alaska, to Peter Buhl and Elisabeth Daugaard-Peters, moving to Denmark as a 3-year-old with sisters Vita and Anne. He was raised in Ribe, Denmark during the German occupation.

He spent time on the Tall Ship Georg Stage while learning to sail in Denmark. Roy learned carpentry and pursued engineering at college in Horsens, Denmark.

He moved to America in 1956, subsequently joining the US Army, being stationed in Germany then honorably discharged in 1959.

Roy started his career as a building inspector for the District of Columbia. He then moved to the federal government as a civil structural engineer. He worked on major projects for the Smithsonian, Department of Energy, and the US State Department. His proudest endeavor was his involvement in the construction of the US Embassy in Moscow.

He also oversaw the development of Sudley Mountain Estates, planning and executing the project, transforming unimproved land into a community; which was home for 49 years.

He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Alice, son Nils of Catharpin, and daughter Jessica and son-in-law Chris of Gainesville and their 2 sons Graysen and Myles. His son, Lawrence Buhl from a previous marriage of California also survives him.

Roy had a love of nature and could often be found wandering in the woods behind his house or fishing in Nils’ pond. Roy LOVED to sit outdoors to enjoy his beer and reading the newspaper. If he saw an interesting insect or animal, he would take a picture, which never ended up as good as the ones on the nature shows he loved.

Roy loved a good steak, with a few martinis and a slice of apple pie. Roy loved his little cat Mohini; she has been by his side for the past 12 years. He loved the beach, and everything that came with it, the sand, sun, waves, fish and walking with Alice.

A memorial service will be held Sunday, February 10th, 2019 beginning at 2:00 p.m. at Sudley United Methodist Church, 5308 Sudley Road, Manassas, Virginia.

In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to one of 2 organizations:

Vi mindes Roy igennem de mange hyggelige timer i Siloen og vores mange ture rundt i Vendsyssel. Han syntes at nyde sine besøg i Danmark, hvad enten det var i lejligheden i Nørresundby, stranden ved Løkken eller hos familien i Aalborg. Han kunne fortælle historier som ingen anden og elskede at checke vores viden om dette og hint over en god middag eller en øl på terrassen. Alt dette vil vi savne. Kærlige hilsner og varme tanker fra familien på Hadsundvej, store som små.
