Not sure what to say?

Dear Tisdale family,
My name is Chris hopkins and I had the pleasure of knowing Roy from our youth and was deeply saddened to learn of his passing. My sincere condolences and apologize for the delay yet just found out of his passing. Roy was as solid as they come during our youth and after reading of his accomplishments, family being the best, along with his distinguished military service, I just wanted to say I'm a better person for knowing him. RIP

Our family is deeply saddened. Roy was a great soldier and friend. Lots of good memories from the FT Benning days. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

I served with LTC Tisdale in Afghan. in 2010. I had the honor of receiving a Bronze Star Medal from him. May he rest in peace. My heart is with your family.

You and your family are in our prayers!
John and Martha Bauguess

May God give you and your children peace and heal your broken hearts.

I have known LTC Tisdale for aproxamently three years while serving in the 525th MI BDE at Fort Bragg NC. He was an outstanding leader and truly cared for the well-being of his troops. Sir, you are truly missed, and it was an honor to serve under you.

I have known LTC Tisdale since December of 2009. He was my battalion XO while I was a Platoon Leader, later my Brigade DCO, followed by my Battalion Commander as a Company XO. He demanded excellence and applied the pressure until excellence was achieved. He was fair to all of us and always said the things to help the light bulb turn on over our heads. Sir, you will be truly missed and I am very lucky to have served with you.

Dearest Kim, Megan and Lane,

We join with so many others who knew your father and husband in offering our deepest sympathy on his passing.

May you find peace and comfort in knowing that his loss is felt by all who knew and loved him. May Gods abiding love and unsurprising peace be intimately found.

In Sympathy,

I was lucky enough to have LTC Tisdale as a mentor and supervisor for two years while assigned to 1-38 CAV. He brought the best out of his soldiers, and he brought the best out in me. We use the word "tragic" too often, and don't understand what the word really means until we lose a hero like him. There are so many questions that will never be answered, but there's one thing we can all be sure of: we were damned lucky to have him as a leader. We'll see you again, some day, sir.
