We are the German friends of Roy’s daughter Alison and her family, and met Roy a couple of times on vacations here and abroad. We always had a good time together because he was such a friendly and smart man, interested in many things, and never got tired of immersing into the difficulties of the German language. He will always have a special place in our hearts. Our most sincere condolences for your loss.

Our family has been so blessed to know Roy through my sister Sue Barber - we got to know him through trips to the UK and from visits to Michigan. Roy was truly a lovely man, caring and kind, interesting and fun, a real blessing to be around. He is already greatly missed and we are saddened by his loss here in Kentucky. Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family.
Lil (Barber) and Stuart Dyson, Brian, Gerald and Aurelia Dyson
