I enjoyed the many conversations I had with Roy when he lived next door to me. He was very alert for his age. My sincere condolences to Jerry and all his family.

Just heard of Roy’s passing and wanted to share our wonderful memories of Roy. When I worked at Clearwater probation at the courthouse Ray would come sit and visit and would look in my coffee cup and say “are drinking that hippy tea again (meaning the herb teas I always had)? He started our asparagus patch for us. He shared my love of iris and contributed many corms to enhance my collection. He was a sweetheart.
