    Roy was a kind and warm person as well as being a very talented and skilled craftsman who took great pride in his work. I had the pleasure, and good fortune, of getting to know, and appreciate, him when I worked in the Maintenance Department. He was part of a vanishing breed. I miss him and will always remember him fondly.
