He was the eldest son of Arthur and Elsie (Roth) Schleicher. Roy lost his father at age 15, he finished high school at 16, farmed the land with his younger brothers Lloyd and Gordon, and at age 19 began working at the Crookston Milling Company in McIntosh.

He enjoyed bowling, fishing, golfing, camping, traveling, card playing (especially whist), square dancing, gardening, and playing a banjo or guitar with other local musicians. In 1961 he purchased the grain elevator, renaming it McIntosh Farm Services, and greatly expanded and improved the business over the years. He also joined others in the business ventures of a potato washing plant in McIntosh and laundromats in Erskine and Oklee. Upon retiring in 1981, Roy and Adelle spent the winter months in Harlingen, TX, and the warm months at their home in McIntosh. He was a baptized and confirmed member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in McIntosh and served in many capacities, and also served on the McIntosh Public School board.
