I'm so sorry to hear of his passing. I didn't really know him, but I do remember his enthusiastic weather forecasts for the WL, in the WL threads.

Here is a picture of me and Roy at Wilderness Lodge in September of 2003.

Here is a caricature we had made and sent to Roy when he first became ill. I know that it looked over him while he was in the hospital the whole time. I wanted to share with all of you.

Rest in peace Roy.
