A half-century ago, Roy Daley was 23 years old and living in the capital of Honduras when a friend offered him a job in the United States. So he immigrated with little more than two shirts and a change of pants.

Roy came to StoryCorps with his wife, Ana, and his daughter, Lucy, to talk about his early days in America.
