Roy was a good friend, a trusted advisor and a professional of unwavering integrity. In the over half century I was an executive, I met few people of his caliber and none I can recall that I had a greater regard for. I moved away and hadn’t seen Roy for many years but, I will confess, unashamedly, the learning of his passing has brought me to tears.

Myself and others will miss Roy. If we are lucky enough..... we run into a person that teaches you a different way to think, how to live, great advice you wouldn’t get elsewhere and much more. Roy was that guy to me. I’ll miss my Tuesdays with Roy!
