I'm so saddened at this news. I worked with Roy for many years at Fermilab. He was the kind, friendly face at the cashier's window, always positive and helpful. I'll always remember how much he loved the chocolate covered custard filled doughnuts I brought in occasionally for the department, and I always saved him one. :-) I'm sure he will be sorely missed by friends and family. Rest in peace, Roy.
