How sad! Roy was always my favorite character. Called it like he saw it and travelled with his cat. He will be missed. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Rest in peace, Roy.

He was one of the characters I liked and disliked. He didn't take crap from anyone. Yet he went overboard at times of being surly with them. You finally reach a comfort zone financially in life and it is taken away from you just as quick.

I loved Roy. He smoked three packs of cigarettes a day and was always very angry and bitter on the show. I am sure that all contributed to his early passing. R.I.P.
