1947 - 2012
With broken hearts, we announce the sudden passing of Roy Fonseca from a massive coronary on November 29, 2012 at his home in Surrey. Roy is survived by his loving wife and best friend of 35 years, Susan (nee Bilton); beloved daughters Charlene (Duane) Knutson and Cindy; beloved son Ryan; granddaughters Cassidy, Mykayla, Mikenna and Malia; parents Eduardo and Maria Fonseca; in- laws Kathleen Vilips and Al and Joan Bilton; and many cherished friends and extended family worldwide. Roy was born in Portugal on November 3, 1947 and grew up in East Vancouver. He graduated from Charles Tupper where he served as Student Council President and later pursued studies at UBC. He dedicated 35 years of service with the Liquor Control Board, but is best known for his joy of life in all things non work-related. Roy's license plate was "FUN CKR". He was known for his positive energy and being a "people person" whose spirit always lit up the room. He loved wine, cooking, sports, music, dancing, progressive politics (NDP), friends and, above all else, family. Roy will be interred at a private family service at 11:00 a.m. on December 10th.
