Roy, just want to thank you again for everything you taught me early on. You were a great boss and a beautiful family friend. I know you're in a better place now. See you when I see you, cause I know I will.
Roy was a long freind of mine over 35 years
Roy was always a example to me as a kind and warm person that all of our family loved.
I am glad I was able to see you before you left us to a much better place.
Roy you are best my condoleneces to all of the family
Ralph & Paloma Orozco
My heart is heavy. We will miss your smile, your laugh and your friendship.
Mitta, We'll always have "sumo". You will be greatly missed.
I knew you in business but when you did call me it would always put a smile on my face. Off on on for over 20 years it was a good day when you got a chance to speak with Roy.
I'm so sorry for your pain and the world is a little darker now with you not in it.
My fondest memory is Roy coming to my home for a poker night and Roy bringing pizza for everyone. He was always so generous and thoughtful.
Roy, I had so much respect and affection for you and you were quality with a capital Q.
Keep a smile on your face.

Sending my deepest condolences to the Niles family. Roy played a HUGE role in my success as a skateboarder and family man. I skated and worked for Roy at Beyond Waves Mountain Surf Shop when I was a teenager and till this day I tell people that was the best time of my life. Roy always inspired me and our skate team to do and be our best, to keep our dreams alive and go big or go home. He will be greatly missed. God bless the wonderful legacy that Roy has left to his family.
Roy, you taught me everything I know about this business when I worked for you at AutoAmerican and you were a wonderful friend. I will miss you very much. You made friends everywhere you went and you were great to us all.
Rest in Peace ...
Always thought of Niles as the "cool" friend of my brother, Kuni. RIP, I'll miss you.

We have all replayed scenes in our mind, Roy. Did we miss a clue? In the end, all that matters is how much you loved your family and friends and how much you are loved. We will all treasure the memories and the love you shared each time our paths crossed. Rest in peace, dear friend, and we will look up in the sky and hope that you are peeking back at us from your new perch in Heaven. We love you....and thanks for the memories...
Thank you for how you've been to us!! We miss you.

Aloha, Roy, the Chofu community will forever miss your warm smile, joie de vivre, kind spirit, and kakko-ii presence at our gatherings. I will treasure the memories of hanging out at the Mai Tai Bar, Gyotaku and Side Street Inn during your frequent visits to the islands. A hui hou (until we meet again).
In memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you.
My Dearest cousin, I love you oh so very much, my heart aches that I can not be with our family, you have touched the lives of so many people with your loving random acts of kindness, you have such a strong family unit beyond what my words can express. I am so proud to be your cousin and to have been in your life. I just know you are at peace and most likely hanging out with my Parents, brother and sister and having a ball, as well as your Mother and Father, you brought us all such happiness and joy hear upon this earth and now to be able to share your angelic kindness in heaven. "You Are The Wind Beneath My Wings" I will always adore you. and I will never forget what you told me 2 weeks ago, you said "Midgie, No Worries" I hope from this day on to live the rest of my life with "No Worries" All my love ~ To The Moon And Back, Midge~
we've been friends for long time. I still cannot believe you're not here.
I will miss you, Roy !!
I was a business associate of Roy's and proud to call him a friend. My best to his family and friends. I will miss him dearly.
Bill Hockinson, Corona del Mar, Ca.
Roy Boy, your qualities were endless and your laughter was contagious. If you were lucky enough to know Roy then you knew true friendship. If you were lucky enough to know Roy you knew the heart and soul of love. If you were lucky enough to know Roy you knew constant compassion. If you were lucky enough to know my friend then count yourself blessed to have an angel that walked into your life. Thank you for leaving those flip-flop footprints in our hearts. Roy, who has been there, done that, and bought the freaking T-shirt!
You will always in our hearts! We love you so much!
The star that shines brightest in the midnight sky will forever remind me of you, Roy, the wanderer who has embarked on another journey. Peace, my friend. You will be deeply missed. "Taiho"
We love you Roy! You will be missed everyday and never forgotten, thank you for being such a great part of our lives <3
im not one for a prayer, Roy your spirit will live on boyond the waves my friend!!
Roy was a great man. I have been a business neighbor for 6 years, he has been the coolest person to work next too, He was cool when our kids would go in the back of the business just to tell him Hi, always put a smile on his face. it was always a great conversation with Roy. Roy was a neighbor and friend, our condolences go out to the family, staff and friends of Roy. He will be missed and celebrated.
