Roy was a true friend and genuine brother. I will certainly miss his humor as well as the similar life experience discussions we have had over the years. Roy loved the Lord and will leave a Christian legacy to his cycling brothers and sisters as well as all who knew him. Words can never do justice in explaining the void our brother, Roy, has left his family and friends but we have the hope of meeting again after this short life here on earth. RIP, my brother.
