Thursday, November 30, 0002We were very shocked and saddened to hear of Roy's passing on Friday May 6th 2006. Dave met Roy in the early eighties, when they both worked at the Sheraton Centre Hotel in downtown Toronto how uncanny that these two dicovered that they came from the same small town in England, Portsmouth Hampshire. This chance meeting turned into a wonderful friendship, spanning over 25 years. Roy introduced Dave to the town of Bancroft, and after spending a weekend, with him camping up there, came home to announce that he had put a deposit down on a lot on Glory Road. With Roy's help and expertise in the building trade, we would not have been able to build our cottage up there, and we are eternally greatful for all of his help with that. From teaching Dave to build the foundations to making roof trusses. Needless to say after this mission was completed we spent many great summers up there with Roy, as he watched our kids, Matt, Ben and Kate grow up. He too had a growing family, and always spoke very fondly of the girls, Denise, Lyn and Sandra and their children who also spent many summers in Bancroft with him while he helped them build cottages too. I think Roy built most of Glory road ! Roy was an a vid outdoorsman, hunting, fishing, and snowmobiling, so needless to say he had some wonderful stories to tell. We have spent many hours around the table with him, listening to his tales, with laughter and over many beers ! He had a great sense of humour, and we will always remember him for that and his stories , he has certainly made a great impact on our lives . Over the last few years we lost contact with Roy,but as luck would have it we bumped in to him in Canadian Tire in Bancroft in the summer of 2004. He came by the cottage for dinner and stayed the night with his faithfull companion Aza . It was really good to see him and catch up on what he had been up to. He was still travelling to Newfoundland for holidays, a place he seemed to love and always wanted to go back to. One thing is for sure and that is that we will never forget him, he was a loyal , trusting and loved friend to Dave and I and our family. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Denise, Lyn and Sandra, their children and grandchildren. As Roy would say, "Cheers mate".....thanks for the memories.......Lesley and Dave and all the family.
