Mr. Williams was a wonderful teacher and I know that many, like me, have the best memories of him. 'Uncle Roy' was my English teacher in grade 10 at Malcolm Campbell High School. He was always encouraging ...and funny. He was open enough to share some of his life with us. One funny story to share: Mr. Williams lived in Morin Heights and would drive into Montreal on Sunday evening to spend the week, returning home on the weekends. Doris, of course, wanted to know that he had arrived safely in Montreal, but long distance calls were expensive in those days. So Roy would make a person-to-person call to the dog (i forget his name ..say Bob. The operator would ask for Bob and Doris would say that Bob was not in at the moment. So... Doris got her reassuring call and there was no cost at all! Wish I could remember the dog's name.
Anyway ... my condolances go out to Doris and all the family ... may you be comforted by your own special memories of Roy and in the knowledge that he touched many lives for good - an that is truly a wonderful legacy. May he rest in peace.
