  6. It is with extreme sadness that Theresa and I write this note upon hearing of Roy’s passing. We also recently lost a member of our family and the edges of the pain are very raw. Take comfort and embrace your friends and family. Draw upon their warmth and compassion for your own strength. We all grieve for a life cut way to short. We grieve for ourselves and the emptiness ahead. Our grief will pass and we will start to heal. The wonderful memories will return and yes, Roy will remain with us forever.

    Our Love, Theresa and Neil Elford

    We are deeply saddened to hear of Roy’s tragic and untimely passing. Roy was a very good fellow with a ready smile and a positive attitude. He was also an astute businessman and a risk taker: few would uproot a family and restart in a new province. Roy did and he thrived. Finally Roy was a great family man and family came first.

    Our most sincere and heartfelt condolences to family and friends on the passing of a very good soul, who left us way way way to early.

    We were so sorrowful to hear of Roy’s illness and passing. I know that there are no words that can be offered to give you comfort but we wanted to let you know how much Roy was loved.

    My childhood memories are filled with thoughts of Bill and Roy and the time and care they took with Michelle and I. He taught us to ride our bikes, how to bat and catch a ball, how to fish, how to skip rocks, and countless other things. The memories will be forever treasured. He was a very special uncle and we were so lucky to have him in our lives.

    You are all in our thoughts and prayers,
