He was definately a character , one to watch, sad situation for being only 49 years old. I am sure with his smoking and his anger type attitude put allot of stress on his heart. R.I.P. Roy

I was just watching the new episodes and was wondering where Roy was. I hated his attitude but really liked him. I can't believe he is gone. RIP Roy
