I will miss seeing Roy on the streets of Hespeler and on the buses. He always had a warm greeting and something clever to say. He seemed genuinely happy in his elder years and always warmed my heart. The last time I spoke to him, perhaps a year ago, he was on his way into the Forbes Park Medical Centre. "I'm going in to see if they can give me another 20 years", he told me. I guess the appointment didn't go as planned. I didn't know of his passing when I the funeral precession passed me by on Rife Av. on Friday morning but I am so glad that I was able to see his final trip down the streets of our town. - Keith Tobey
