Friendship endures in many ways. The truest test is in the strength of memories of those whom we loved dearly.
Still thinking of you My Friend; and still loving you always. V & J
It's hard to believe that It's been a year today since Roy's passing. I still feel him near me with his love and see his smile and hear his laughter in my heart and mind every day. He's left a void in so many lives that will never be filled, but I'd like to thank all of my wonderful family and friends for their love and support over the past 365 days on earth without Roy. Whahow, my darling! You are forever in our hearts.
My deepest sympathies to Susan and the family ... we have lost a caring and loving human being.
My heart goes out to this wonderful person who always placed his sense of duty and responsibility before himself.
May God give him eternal peace!
Dear Susan and family, I just read of Roy's mom passing and saw that Roy had predeceased her. What a shock to know that a man with such a love of life is gone. Please accept our deepest belated condolences for this huge loss.
Also, please accept our condolences for the passing of Roy's mom.
On behalf of the Fonseca family I would like to thank all of you for your kind words of condolence and for sharing wonderful personal stories and memories of Roy. If you would like to view the video of the Celebration service and/or the photo DVD of Roy's life, click on www.dignityvictory.com. I think you'll find yourself smiling or even laughing with Roy again as you view some of his escapades!
I did some work around the Fonseca house for the last couple of years and after work Roy and I would sit down and talk about life for hours over a couple of beers. We both found it quite amusing when we discovered that we were born exactly one day apart. "What are the odds?" we asked. I got to know and like Roy a lot during those chats -- I will miss him.
My condolences to Susan, Ryan and the entire family.

Over the past year we had gotten to know Roy well at my place of work. He was always a joy to converse with and always brought his smile and a great attitude with him when he came in. We were all truly shocked to hear of his passing, he will be dearly missed. Our condolences go out to his family and friends.
You were well loved. Cheers, Mrs Potter in Newton
I just heard about Roy's passing yesterday.. I was saddened to hear that.. I worked with him for years at the Newton Liquor store in Surrey.. He was always a pleasure to be around.. Funny.. Positive.. Lots of energy.. I remember when he retired.. Then just weeks later he was back in the liquor store doing tastings!! He just couldn't stay away.. Roy was an amazing person! My condolences to his family & friends.
I was saddened to hear of Susan's and the family's loss. My best wishes to all during this difficult time.
To Susan and family, and to Mr. Eduardo & Mrs. Maria Fonseca we wish to convey our most heartfelt sorrow and our deepest condolences. Roy was so much like his dad, a real chip off the old block - a vibrant personality, very charismatic and engaging. He will be sadly missed but remembered fondly. Sincerest condolences from Roy & Jody Monteiro, and on behalf of Francelina, Tony and Adilia Monteiro
"Aspiration", what we all deep down aspire to be. Roy fit that meaning to a tee. We all wish to be outgoing, funny, sarcastic without hurting, intelligent in thought , a friend to everyone. Roy was a friend to every one touched by his personality and love of life. Roy will be sadly missed but forever thought of........ We will miss you Roy, but you will be forever in our thoughts...... Thanks for being a part of my life Roy, we shall meet again.....
Susan - my thoughts are with you and your family as you go through this very difficult time.
Dear Susan and Family,
Roy was a Joy to be around and everyone who met him had a
Memory for a Lifetime. We shall miss his infectious Laughter and his incredible Sense of Humor. He sure lit up the Place where ever he went. Roy-Baby, you are missed.
Roy was an honor to work with and he always made his coworkers feel important and safe. Did I mention it was a blast as well!
Roy always treated the ladies with respect and never had a bad word to say about anybody. We had lots of political talks and he was so proud of his wife's political knowledge. I have missed you
since you retired but now I know that you are an angel that is soaring above your family and friend protecting and loving us all from above.and blessing us with your love. I will pray for your family during this difficult time. Lots of awesome memories. Peace.
I worked with Roy for several years at both Scottsdale and Newton liquor stores. What a guy! Always making me laugh. We went to a first aid course together at head office - something ridiculous happened in the class and that's when Roy got the giggles. He then got me going and OMG I thought they were going to ask us to leave. We made it through, but that's just one of the many funny stories and good memories I have of "the Fonz".
Susan, Keith and I offer our heartfelt condoences to you and all your family on your loss of Roy.
I am heart sick to learn of Roy's passing and send my love and condolences to you, Susan and the rest of the family. We had lots of laughs at Matt's and memorable times at your home. I will miss bumping into Roy in Ocean Park and various other places. Such a kind and gentle man will be missed by many. I can not attend the service but will be thinking of you.
Susan, you are such a force for positive change in this world. I did not have the chance to meet Roy, but I know he is behind who you are, and who you have become. Someone with so much spirit, surely leaves a space behind that cannot be filled. May your happiest memories bring you comfort in this difficult time, and know that your friends are sending out as many hugs as we can,even from afar.
Celebrating a life well lived. We will cherish the memories forever.
Susan, we were shocked and saddened to hear of your loss. We are thinking of you and your family. Sincerest condolences.
Sending you peace and love during this difficult time. My deepest condolences on your loss.
With sadness and disbelief, I send my sympathies to Roy's family and close friends.
Roy, your humor and dynamic personality is what made going to work an enjoyable adventure for so many of us who have worked with and have known you for so many years.
Gone too soon my friend.
Forever in our hearts and minds.
Susan and family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
We are so sorry for your terrible loss and are thinking of you. We hope our thoughts and feelings are of some comfort to you.

I knew Roy at Charles Dickens and Tupper. One of the good guys, left this world much to soon. RIP Roy. Sincere condolences to the family.
I am very sorry to hear of you're loss. I attended both Elementary and Secondary School with Roy as well as worked at the LDB for thirty-seven years so I was always aware we were on a parallel course although we were not close friends." Ask not for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee." My deepest sympathies, sincerely, John Tregilges.
It is with great sadness and shock that we learn of Roy's passing. Way too early! For Susan and the kids as well as Roy's parents we offer our sincery condolences and prayers.
It is so difficult to comprehend the loss of Roy. Words really fall short of expressing our sorrow. We do know that you never lose the people we love as they live the rest of our lives with us in our hearts. Roy will be no exception to this along with that extra dose of laughter and crazy sense of humor. Love to you Susan and all the family.
My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Roy's loving family at this very sad time. My times working with Roy were always enjoyable and he always brightened my day! His laughter and smile were contagious. He will be so sadly missed by so many people. There's another Bright Star up in Heaven.Once again my deepest sympathy to all of Roy's lovely Family & friends. We all loved him very much!
I went to high school with Roy and although we were never close friends I always liked Roy enough to be shocked and saddened by learning of his death. RIP Roy

Separate ways and separate lives... but always in my thoughts these many years.
I will continue to hold the rattlesnake's head for you My Friend. Waa-How
I have many fond memories of working with Roy in the 80's & 90's & early 2000's We retired at the same time. Rest in Peace.
Growing up with Roy was a joy. I went to Charles Dickens and also to Tupper with Roy. He was a good soccer player, fastball pitcher and rugby player. He was thoughtful and funny. "Tiki" will always be remembered as one of my best friends in school.
This is for Al Bilton. If you are the Al that worked at APT and opened your own Art Store in North Vancouver. This is Lynda Baker. We were all friend together Jack and Bonnie. Many years ago. If this is you I wish to offer my condolences to you and your daughter .
You were such a lovely man, Roy. I will miss your laugh, your smile, your cologne. Rest in peace my friend.
I am sorry to hear of your loss, I worked with Roy 78 - 84, his bright smile and happy disposition will always be remembered. Pat
Thoughts and prayers to all Roy's family and friends. We will miss him. Laurie Griffith
I am one of many who are saddened by Roy's passing.Over the years, Roy was one of the people I most enjoyed seeing as I made my sales calls:alongside his obvious good nature,ready wit and buoyant love of life, it was also easy to see that you were dealing with an intelligent, resourceful and very genuine man; an unpretentious person who had strong values, and a sincere regard and respect for his fellow human beings.
I'll miss the conversations about the world, politics. sports...and Roy's great laugh!!
You are missed, Mr. Funseeker. Happy Trails.
