I have so many fond memories of my cousin Roy. We're the same age, we played on the same Little League team, coached by his Wonderful Father, Roy Sr.
We played stickball, stoop ball, wiffle ball, running bases, played catch, collected baseball cards, played board games, went to movies together, watched the Honeymooners together, and so much more.
We attended many Mets and Yankees games since I was a die hard Mets fan and he and his Father were passionate Yankees fans.
When we'd go to Shea, the day wasn't complete without stopping for a slice of his favorite pizza from Corona before hopping on the 58 bus for our journey home.
I could go on and on, but I'll sum it up by saying that I loved him very much, and that he had a Heart of Gold. His Heart was always in the right place, as the old saying goes.
My deepest condolences to his loving family. Rest in peace my Dear Cousin, until we meet again.

My cousin Roy honored me by having me as the Best Man at his wedding. I returned the favor 7 years later. He will always fill my memories of all the good times in my childhood. From Yankee games to playing catch in the street, stoop ball and fireworks. Never a dull moment on the Road.

I want to tell you a story about the Roy I knew. When I first met him it was a family BBQ and Ann/I had been dating only a few months. I was given prep by family members that I already met. I showed up to that BBQ and nervous, calm on the outside but inside I was paddling a mile a minute. Would he like me, am I enough for his only daughter, what did I get myself into, could I run away and not do this, etc… The first thing he said to me when he came outside was Hey John come sit next to me….
Oh no…here we go here comes the if you break my daughters heart you won’t see the light of day speech…but it was the exact opposite. He started talking about the Yankees with me…..Well that that’s not what I expected I internalized.
I saw a proud, passionate man, a family man. A man whose showed strength and perseverance even when he wasn’t feeling his best but he made it work for him always being positive. You could tell from 2 minutes of talking with him that he was passionate about a few things. He loved his family, he loved his sports and over time I got to realize that he even loved me.
He gave me his daughter. Roy and Joann gave me this amazing strong and proud women. They gave me this gigantic family that is so much like my own family. They welcomed and loved me with open arms. He was the second man in my life other than my father that I could ask for advice, or shoot the breeze with about anything. This was the Roy that I knew and will always remember.
Rest easy now Roy…all the pain and suffering you had is gone. We will miss you forever and I can only hope to take care of Ann and one day when we have children, be like the proud father you were!
