Celebrating Roy’s Life

roy memorial2

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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

  11. I offer my heartfelt condolence, Jane. Roy left a lovely memory for all. —- Suzanne
