    Sorry to hear of Roy’s passing. Sending prayers to his wife and family. Roy was always anxious to talk when we rented the house across the street from him. Some good conversations about new and old times.

    We are so sorry for your loss. My father, Herbert Taylor loved going to see Roy for a haircut. He also took his grandsons to see Mr. Roy. I know they are in heaven having a great conversation and catching up. He is a great loss to the community. Our deepest condolences to the entire family.

    Roy will be missed by all of us who worked with Brunswick Public Schools. I can't begin to count the number of times he came to my aid when I called. He always did his best to solve the problems and the headaches I threw his way.
    My sympathies to the family. He was a good man and he will be missed.
