Thanks God to give me a chance to be a Chinese Cultural Representative in 2001-2002, so that I could meet Uncle Roy and Auntie Le who was an ‘Angel Couple’ when I worked at WDW. They visited me when I arrived in Orlando. Uncle Roy always visited the China Pavilion every week and our graduation ceremony. At that year, I had to work in my birthday and couldn’t celebrate with friends. However, Uncle Roy visited me at my work and said ‘Happy Birthday’, even he was busy on that day. After I completed the contract at WDW, Uncle Roy and Auntie Le welcomed my family from HK to stay at their home and visited WDW in few days. We never forgot their hospitality and care in there. Uncle Roy also shared gospel to my mother and led us to the church.
In 2016 Oct, this Angel Couple visited Korea and Hong Kong happily. They knew that I’d get married soon. Uncle Roy talked to my future husband, like my dad... ‘you had to take good care of Angela in the future. It would be my last time in Hong Kong.... We’ll meet in heaven next time...’
Uncle Roy, we all miss you... you are right. We shall meet in Heaven. You don’t have pain and sorrow in Heaven anymore. Your spirits never fail. Our family also hardly serve our God in our rest of life.
With deepest sympathy. Our thoughts and prayers are with Tun’s family.

There are angels among us and Roy was one of them. He was tireless in his mission to introduce Jesus to the many visiting foreign workers at Disney in Orlando. And he didn’t just minister to them he “adopted” them and they became a part of his and Leora’s extended family. I was lucky to have been part of that family since 1973.

Roy and Leora opened up their hearts and home to me and friends when we first came to Chicago. They made us feel welcome in a city that was at times overwhelming. Their kindness and generosity to me was very much appreciated and I am grateful that we kept the bonds of friendship strong.

Roy’s sense of humor was always uplifting. I shall truly miss him.
Thank you, Roy. I love you.

Our memories together...where do I start: from being a cultural representative of Germany at Disney and being introduced to him by my Chinese roommate Lisa, , to trips to St Augustine, Cape Canaveral Nasa station, to Hawaii and so many visits at they’re beautiful house at Orange Blossom Trail, to trips to Cosco...oh we loved Cosco, to Aunt Leora and I trying to catch up with him at Disney as he was using his scooter like a motorcycle :-), to flying with him to Cleveland for his surgery...but these are only the outer memories. The ones that were truly special were being loved by Uncle Roy like my dad wasn’t able to, to talk to him and feel that he cared for me, to receiving letters from Orlando to Germany whenever he found some article about how to cure or better migraines as he knew I suffered from them. To me being introduced to Jesus and his church in such a beautiful way I never knew was possible, to me asking Uncle Roy if he could imagine to walk me down the aisle when I get married. These past years he always made me laugh with telling me I should hurry up, as he is only spare parts and me telling him I will not get married if that keeps him alive. I didn’t. And i will miss him so much forever. These past days I took the time to be alone and remember him. The way he would turn his head when he wanted to start a serious conversation, the way we would pray before dim sum, his shoes that have been the same kind ever since I knew him...I knew before he passed that I could never repay him what he gave to me, but I hope I will through living and giving like he did. There is only one thing in the world that doesn’t become less but will fill you up with even more when you give it...love! That’s what I learned from him!

It was always a great pleasure to have Roy and Leora around on special holidays. He had so many pleasant stories to tell and could entertain you well. You could tell he was a family person and was very close to all his family members. He will be missed by many. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. Love you. Mark and Eleanor

Dear Uncle Roy Family:

When we been told that Uncle Roy had suddenly left us for a faraway place: we were deeply saddened and sorry; When we been told that Uncle Roy had suddenly left us for a faraway place: we seemed to see his mercy, warm, kind smile, feel his meticulous help and care; When we been told that Uncle Roy had suddenly left us for a faraway place:, we seemed to hear his warm encouragement and care in helplessness and solitude. We are convinced that not only are we now involved in the cultural exchange program here, but also that thousands of people who have worked here before are deeply saddened by the sudden death of Uncle Roy at this moment. This more than thirty-year-long, heart-shaking, loving gospel, beautiful melodies suddenly stopped. Suffocate the air, hold the time , and only the tears tremble in the fragile eyes. In people's blurred vision: we see Uncle Roy benevolent smile, honest and honest figure and helping.. May Uncle Roy walk into your ideal heaven in the beautiful mournful words, in the melodious song of holiness! Dust to the earth, and the spirit to the God of the Spirit! We sincerely wish you rest in the arms of God forever! I'd like to express my condolences on behalf of all the cultural exchange scholars who have been blessed with Uncle Roy.

All Culture Representatives
