Just today I was wondering about Dr. Royer. I was 5 years old when he operated on me in 1964. When I saw him again 15 years later, he showed me a picture I had drawn for him so long ago. A remarkable man! RIP dear Dr. Royer. Mary Elizabeth Anderson

I am very sad to here about Dr. Royers passing, he was a great mentor to my son Warren and he will be greatly missed by him. He helped my son so much in the last 3 years and we will be forever grateful to Dr. Royer for all his help and motivation.

So very sorry about Dr. Royer's passing. I remember hearing stories about the annual gathering of the WSMed School grads. There was a special group of guys who got along quite well and had a lot of laughs over the years, along with their wonderful wives. What a nice dinner party they must be having now. Cherish all of your wonderful memories of a very nice gentleman.
