My Condolences to Lynnda, Richard and Lisa. Roy has not left you, but gone to a better place to be reunited with you all when you are called to be together again.

Lynnda: I am so saddened to hear about Roy's passing. He was wonderful to me when I ran for Florida Senate 4-years ago. When I visited with Roy at his office in the industrial park, we often spoke of business topics more than politics. We discussed a business broker venture that we were going to call Speer-Taylor & Associates. That business would list businesses for sale and find qualified buyers for them. We never managed to get back together to complete it. The last time I spoke with Roy on the phone, he said. "I will call to take you a ride in my new car and we will work on Speer-Taylor." The call never came to my disappointment, because I really respected Roy. Patty and I will always cherish the dinner we enjoyed at you and Roy's home. We both wanted to write this note and tell you we are thinking and praying for you and your family. If you want to touch base with us, our home phone is 727-376-0240. God bless and comfort you, Lynnda.

My condolences to Roy's family and friends. Roy was so generous to my family and my son was fortunate to have received a scholarship from him. His generosity has been instrumental in my son's success. I wish I had been able to thank him one last time for just being a friend in our life. May God bless all of you in this time of sorrow.

Roy was a wonderful friend, mentor and beacon of strength that helped sculpt the lives of countless people he supported throughout his life. His loyalty and resolve single handedly lead by example and built something from nothing, a trait more rare than the giant heart he had beneath his tough exterior. His pioneering and fearless spirit helped create an amazing legacy which will be missed, but his friendship, kindness and love will leave behind memories and smiles for all who knew and loved him. We'll miss you Roy - but you will always be with us!

Dear Lynnda, Richard & Lisa
I share your lost of Roy as he was a friend and a mentor to me. Roy was an extraordinary person that I had a great opportunity to know and work with. The lessons that he taught me over the past years I will never forget my only regret is that I wish we had had more time. Again my heart goes out to all of you for being such wonderful people I know in my heart that Roy is in a better place and feels no pain. The pain is left behind for us who loved Roy with all our hearts.With deepeast sympathay God Bless

My sincere condolences go out to the Speer family. I worked for Roy in Tampa with his son Richard and then in Nashville at Speer Communications. Roy was a mentor and a good friend to me. I am saddened to hear that he has passed on. He touched the lives of so many and will not be forgotten. Rest in Peace Roy.
