Royce & I graduated Georgiana High in 1958. It was during that school year that I met him. Always enjoyed seeing him at Class reunions!
May He Rest In Peace!!

So sorry to hear about your loss, I’ll always remember sitting around and enjoying the stories he would tell about the past with that twinkle in his eye and smile on his face. We have lost a good man , yet I know he is in a better place.

I'm so sorry to read about Royce's death. He was a nice classmate in the Georgiana High School class of 1958. My sympathy to his family.
