Captain Boldt,
One of the finest airman I have ever had the pleasure of sharing the cockpit with during my many years as a Co-Pilot. I never had the pleasure of hearing Roy play the piano but I am sure he was one of the best.

Roy was possibly my favorite Captain. Once, on a short turnaround in Newark, I tuned one of the minor DC-9 radios (pilots: the ADF) to an AM channel, 1560, which was WQXR, New York's classical music station. Roy was off the airplane as I listened to the radio, doing paperwork, and didn't detect his return. When he came back into the cockpit, I hastily turned the radio off. His reaction was like that of an alerted cat, raising its ears. He of course demanded that I show him the frequency and turn the radio back on. It was the first I knew of his musical background; we of course then flew happily many times over the New York area with WQXR playing in the background. I still think of Roy every time I turn on WQXR, especially if there's a piano concerto playing. I hope he will find deserved orchestral accompaniment in his next venue. I miss him.

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Roy many times and enjoyed every minute of our time together in the cockpit. He was a wonderful man and I will remember him with fondness.

We have so many good memories of Roy, from many years. Roy was more like a brother to me (Jack) than a business friend or associate. His passing leaves an empty space in both of our hearts. We wish all the best to all of his
family and friends.
Captain and Mrs. John R. Burchfield (Jack & Melissa)

I had the privilege of servicing the Boldt's piano when I lived in the Stuart area. Lovely, lovely people. Visiting them was always a high point in the year. They will be sorrowfully missed.
