So Sorry to learn that Roy has passed away. He was my mentor and a wise and kind leader back in the Allis Chalmers Appleton days. He hired me and gave me a great start in the quality profession. Fond memories and the greatest respect. With sympathy.

I was sorry to see that Roy had passes away. Roy responded to the invitation to our notice last September of our 65th anniversary of our graduation from Park High. He said he would love to be with us but he didn't travel outside the city limits anymore. Roy was a good friend in high school. One of the most memorable events of that graduation was when his name was called and as he approached the podium some "wise guy" shouted out, "where is trigger?" Additional sadness was that there were 2 more of the of the Class of 1950 who also passed away. Again my condolences to Roy's family.
