My family knew his family before he got married, my mother study the Bible with his mother. He was such a good-natured person, always smiling, always so kind. I am so looking forward to seeing him in the new earth, and he will have that amazing smile.

In 1991 we took a trip to New York , 8 or 9 of us , to visit the world headquarters of Jehovah's Witnesses .
Spending time with Roy on the trip made a great trip even better .
Over the years he has helped me out in ways , that I am very grateful for.
Even though it is temporary I will miss him very much.

It has been 42 years since I last saw or spoke to Roy, but I can never forget the wonderful influence this man had on my life. We will soon be able to serve our Grand Creator, Jehovah, forever on a paradise earth. I remember his beautiful family....working door to door, learning from him.

Growing up as a child and being a friend to his kids, Roy is what I remember to be the funniest, most inviting and sweetest man. My heart goes out to you all♥

Though it has been years since I last had a chance to see or talk with Roy or his family, I had the privilege of being their neighbor when I was growing up. Roy and I also shared working in the same industry when I got out of school and I know he was respected by many.

I send my thoughts and best to Rhee and the family.

Roy played baseball with my younger brother at Benson, & I think they were both machine shop majors. My family quickly came to appreciate that things might get better when Roy came up to the plate. I was so pleased to greet him when he brought a grandkid to a recent Tech Show. And I was even more pleased to brag about that encounter with others of his teammates. Please have my condolences.

I went to Benson HS at just about the same time as Roy. Although I have not seen Roy in at least 20 years, I can attest to the fact that he had a gentle spirit.We played baseball together on the Benson team for a couple of years. He was the best ballplayer on the team. We weren't the best team by far, but Roy was 2nd team All-PIL his senior year in 1964. You have to appreciate God's providence in having loaned Roy to us for 64 years.
