"I am so sorry to hear that Roy has passed away. I enjoyed working in the engineering department with Roy many years ago at TV 7&4 in Traverse City. He was always willing to share his knowledge and I learned a lot from him over the years. Our work was often stressful but we shared many laughs along the way. A good man gone too soon. My condolences to Roy’s family. "
