Rhett G. Roy, 76, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family on Friday April 23, 2021. Rhett was born in Baton Rouge, LA. He attended LSU where he graduated and went on to become a professor of Landscape Architecture. After moving to South Florida he started Rhett Roy Landscape Architecture, which became one of the most distinctive firms in Fort Lauderdale. Rhett designed many prestigious projects throughout his career and won numerous distinguished awards. He truly left the world a more beautiful place. Rhett had a passion for cars, old and new. When he wasn’t working on “Sally”, his 1932 Ford Coupe, you could find him at home fishing on his dock catching a good sunset. Rhett was a wonderful husband, devoted father and survived by his loving wife Kim, son Josh, daughters Amanda and Fallon (Josiah), brother-in-law John Pust, niece Alexa, nephew Johnathan and extended family in Pittsburgh and Baton Rouge.
