I did not know Roy very well. However, we connected in the late 1980s. I was trying to prove, we were related, but never found the missing link despite our family's origins in German Pomerania from 2 small villages 35 miles apart. I shared information with him after connecting with many of his distant relatives scattered from here to the west coast as well as genealogical information from the Morman Library in Salt Lake City.
May you rest in peace, Roy, and condolences to your widow
