Roy is now at peace. He was ready to go, he told me, at 1.30 am on the day of our Golden Wedding Anniversary, 1st July, 2017.
He’d made it!
Much loved father and grandfather; friend of many.

Poli sana from Ted and Andy and a sad kwaheri to an old friend.Lala salama.
Asante sana you two. Good to hear from you.
Jane, I am so sorry to hear this…he was an amazingly resilient man. I have tried to read the post but although I subscribed I still can’t access it. My earliest memory of you all was Pony Club camp in Thika amongst the pineapples and the VW Combi in which you transported your pony! That would have been 1977 which seems eons ago!
The picture here is so him…just as I remember him….my thoughts are with you all at this sad time but it sounds as if he was ready and at peace.
My love to you all…and if you are able to let me know how I can read about him, please do!
Hi Helen – many thanks for your message. I have sent the first batch of Newsletters out, and need to program a repeat for all the new subscribers resulting from my blog. My computer/mind seems to have gone on strike. Local problems with my broadband don’t help; and I’ve decided to leave it until tomorrow. Never fear, you’ll get the email tomorrow (our tomorrow!)
Yes – we all remember taking Smudge to pony club camp in the kombi with the green velvet curtains!
My deepest sympathy Jane. Your 50 years together will be a milestone to remember, always. RIP Roy.
Thank you for your thoughts, Val.
My love and thoughts to you. So sorry Jane. A great man and many happy memories of Impala days. Jenny O’Toole
Thankyou for those kind words, Jenny
I worked with him at Survey of Kenya. Played hockey too. A fine man. We all at Surveys, liked him. May God bless his soul.Akram , San Diego, California.
Thank you Akram, for news from his colleagues at Survey of Kenya.
Hi Jane, Sincere condolences on behalf of all of us boarders in Rhodes House in the mid 1950’s who were privileged to know Roy and enjoy his company. He was a brilliant sportsman with skills in hockey and soccer second to none. Rest in peace, Roy – always a true gentleman, you will be remembered and respected for the courage and quiet humour you showed us in spades.
Thank you for those kind words, Peter.
