A good friend for most of my life.  I saw him a few weeks ago and he made me laugh as much as he did in history class 60 years ago. I was blessed to know him.

I am sorry to read of Roy's passing. He was a good guy and fun to be around as an AHS classmate. I wish his family the best and I am sure he built a life of fond memories.

Sharing home room for 4 years, I remember Roy quite well. What I remember most is that he had a GREAT sense of humor! He could turn almost anything into something funny. My condolences to all his family members.

I was fortunate to attend Byford with Roy and then ended up in the same honors home room with him and the lovely Miss Doheny. I still remember Doheny sliding her chair backwards and smashing Roy against the chalkboard when all he was doing was going to sharpen his pencil. She felt he was going to put horns on her head with his fingers. No wonder his profile says he did not like her out of all the teachers at Austin. She definitely wasn't my favorite either.  Rest In Peace, Roy.

Like others who have posted, I too was in Ms. Doheny's home room with Roy, and like others what I remember most was that he made me smile and laugh. I hope he had a wonderful life.

I got to know Roy in third or fourth grade at Byford.  We bonded very tightly for a couple of years over our mutual obsession with dinosaurs.  When we met again after fifty-plus years, the first thing he said was "Jurassic Park, what a great movie!"

I relocated to Memphis in 1966, but up until two days before his passing we talked via "messages". From 1960  Roy and the rest of our gang went thru it all. I am lucky to have known him and he provided the example of what a real friend is. A sharp wit and a solid grounding were the things I appreciated the most. My best to Linda and his family. His friends loved him.
