Guys,
A sad day.... I learned that Roy Nacewicz, passed away. He was one of my closest friends in the hobby and I will miss him dearly. The hobby has lost a great man. I will miss our weekly phone calls.

Sad to say but most of us are at an age where such a report would not be unusual.

Sorry for your loss. Many of us understand about the feelings of one of our best friends leaving forever. It really sucks.

Very sorry to read that. We had numerous conversations over the years when I called to order items. He was always helpful with suggestions even when he didn't have what I needed, which was rare. Thanks for letting us know 35fordtn.

I only purchase paint from Roy but I spent almost an hour on the phone with him. What a loss. He was such a knowledgeable and friendly person. He will be in my prayers this Easter weekend.

I'm sorry to hear of Roy passing, may he rest in peace. I met him at an Eastern National meet in Connecticut in the '90's. He was sitting at the same banquet table as I. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. My prayers go out for him and his family.

Michael, That is truly sad news. I also considered Roy one of my good friends. He was a great and generous person. I will remember him and his dedication to our hobby. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Marlana. May he rest in peace!

Like Michael and Don, Roy was a close friend and in my case for nearly fifty years. I am truly saddened to learn of his passing.

We started the nut and bolt business together back in the 'seventies (Dearborn High-Point Specialties) which he carried on himself when Ford sent me on an overseas assignment. Few in the hobby rival his contributions to it.

I will sorely miss our Friday night dinners at the Waltz Inn near his home.

May he rest in peace.

WOW. I met Roy way back in 1978, at my first EFV-8 National Meet in Tulsa OK. Got invited to his house during the 1979 Eastern National Meet. And he invited me to 'tag' along in October of 1982 to an event called Hershey, and I have been attending ever since. I have known Roy since then, and that equates to over 1/2 of my life knowing him.
As we all know, we will all end up the same, but there are those that you don't believe that will ever pass, and Roy was one of those.
So, very sad. I will miss him dearly.

early on in my introduction to flathead Fords, I met a really great Ford man, his name was Clark Reed, thru him I met Roy who was also a very knowledgeable , extremely nice Ford man. We have lost both of these men this year, it is a sad day for the flathead Ford community. REST IN PEACE my friends Clark and Roy
