Mr Roy was my Topology professor when I was getting an MA in Math at Villanova. He was my favorite professor. He was on my committee for my oral exams in May 1970. Mr Roy was a wonderful man - funny, always pleasant and helpful. I am a college math teacher today because of him.

RIP Mr. Roy

With deepest sympathy to the family during your time of sorrow.
God is for us a refuge and strength, A help that is readily to be found during difficult times. Psalms 91:2. May you find the needed strength from God, family and friends.

My wife, Sheela, and I are saddened to learn about the loss of Lucien.

Lucien was a colleague (he in Mathematics Department, and I in Economics Department) at Villanova University. We were also neighbours who lived across the street from each other on Browning Lane in Rosemont.

Our paths often crossed when we were walking from Browning Lane to Villanova campus.

Our heartfelt condolences to his children and grandchildren.

I had the good fortune to be a graduate student of Lucien Roy back in the sixties. He was the best mathematics professor I ever encountered. He was unconventional, exasperating, dramatic but always brilliant. He would come to class only half prepared having jotted some notes on a piece of scrap paper and proceed to attempt a proof of some deep math theorem. He would not proceed as a textbook would going from top to bottom in a step to step manner but rather worked from the bottom to middle and then maybe from the top to the middle. He would show that the proof generally rested on one crucial link. Sometimes he was not able to see this crucial link and would throw chalk across the room venting his frustration. But oh how he showed us how math proofs really worked. He showed us that it was alright to struggle to get frustrated and angry but to never give up. He turned me into a mathematician. Years later I earned a Ph D in mathematics and will remain always grateful to him for showing me how to do proofs in math. God bless Lucien Roy. You will be missed.
