I was a student of Mr. Roy at Lamar Tech in 1969, and in 1970. He was a nice guy, and I've thought of him many times since. Good people aren't ever forgotten. I'm sure there are more that share my view. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Paul and Mary Ann lived behind me for many many years. They were a lovely couple. Paul and Mary Ann were good neighbors to all of us and they will be so missed. I was lucky to have them as neighbors. May Paul rest in peace with Mary Ann. I wish Peace and prayers for the Roy family.

I'm sorry to hear of professor Roy's passing. I was one of his students in the early 1980's. He is an excellent instructor, and I am privileged to have been a student of his, and honored to know him. Thank you. With deepest sympathy Darrell Hagler
