So shocked to hear of Roy's passing. He had such a strong vibrant spirit & an amazing positive attitude that I thought his body would be alive forever! I so cherish the time I was able to spend with him. He was a highly intelligent, wise person that just glowed with compassion. I met him through the Gaston County Gem, Mineral & Faceters Club in Gastonia, NC. He made all new members feel welcome & was always willing to share not only his vast knowledge of minerals but also his finds. He was a pure example of a wonderful human being. I will sorely miss him. My heart goes out to his wife, (I'm so glad he found love again), & family. He held great love & dedication for his family always in his heart.
Sending prayers & love.

He could write a book!:) We all loved him and will miss him so very much! We look to see him again soon in the resurrection of all of our loved ones on the paradise earth promisd to all obedient ones. It was a blessing to know him and his wife, Margie,
