My heartfelt condolences to family and friends as you journey through this sudden and unexpected loss of your precious husband, dad and friend. Roy will be greatly missed by everyone that knew him. As fellow coworkers of Roy, we have all felt at a loss for words and feel the emptiness left upon his sudden passing. He was a dedicated instructor who cared about his students and enjoyed teaching. He cared about others and always had a funny story to share and an encouraging word for others. May he rest in peace in his heavenly home. Till we meet again. Friends and Co-Workers at TSTC
