Very sad news indeed. As others have said, Roy was a pleasure to speak with. I just spoke with him a few weeks ago. He always was intent on making sure each part needed was exactly what it should be..My prayers for his family.

Sorry to hear about Roy's passing. He was a great ambassador to the early Ford V8 hobby and a genuinely nice guy.

Very sad day to lose such a wonderful and great man for the Early Ford V-8 hobby. I visited him 10 years ago and he was extremely helpful with my restoration.

RIP Roy I only wish that RIP meant "Return if Possible" How lucky I am to have known you the guidance that you gave me on the bolting requirements for my 34 roadster during its restoration was so much appreciated. I always enjoyed and will miss our telephone conversations because each time you always left me a little more Ford enlightened and I thank you my friend....

Roy help me a lot. It won't be the same without him. I talk to him at Hershey. I wonder if anyone will take over where he left off? He was a big help, just can't believe it. WOW I will surely miss him a lot.

Really sorry to hear of this. Roy and I were engineers together at Ford Advanced Body Engineering years back. A wealth of knowledge and a helpful, unselfish individual is lost to all of us.

NO!...no, no, no. This can't be true, or I don't want it to be true. Not Roy.
I sure struggle with this one. Best wishes and condolences to Roy's family. How sorely he will be missed.
I was just talking with him the other day. In his usual fashion, he went to great lengths to share information and advice with me about 37 Sedan Deliveries. He shared a story about how he came to own his 37 SD and was a wealth of information. What a generous and wonderful person Roy was. As everyone is saying, he will be truly missed.....darn, it is so sad he is gone....

I never had the pleasure of meeting him in person, however as others have mentioned, he was so nice, knowledgeable, and helpful on the phone. Sad to learn of his passing.

God Bless

Rest in peace, Roy. This is shocking news. Roy was a treasure to our hobby and was the Early Ford V-8 club's liaison to the Bensen Ford Research Center. Roy was instrumental in making the initial arrangements to get the 2018 Grand National Meet started. For these and many more reasons he will be truly missed. Roy was a generous man and a friend.

I have known Roy since the 70s' and have had dinner with him several times during National meets in Dearborn and while doing research for the ill fated 1935-1936 Ford Pickup book. He was a nice, friendly and very knowledgeable Ford guy. He will be greatly missed in the hobby. RIP Roy.

Roy did a lot for the hobby and the V-8 Club. Not only did he supply needed products for restorations, but he also volunteered a lot of his time to the club and it's members. The amount of advice he gave out over the years is immeasurable. RIP Roy
