I just read that too on FB, what a loss, I only spoke with him via email a few weeks ago, he was a top guy, not many know as much about Comets & Fords as him & also very helpful too, wish I got a chance to meet him in person. John

I looked for the post but couldn't find.

I met Roy once and it was a nice meeting. Have talked to him a few times.

He was a smart and helpful guy and will surely be missed. My condolences to his family and friends. Rest in piece my friend.

Sad news, Roy helped many of us with his knowledge of comets and inspired many with his awesome comet. I had talked with recently about visiting him at his new place. RIP Roy
