Condolence from Al & Julie Cripps on January 28th, 2019 1:14 PM

We send our condolences to Roy’s family. We knew him when he was in Recreation at the Remand. He & Mildred also shared missed episodes of Coronation Street with us, whe our own recordings failed. May he rest in peace.

Condolence from Borden Gonder on January 28th, 2019 4:06 PM

Our thoughts and prayers are with Roy’s family . I met Roy in 1962-1965 , we served together in Germany with the F.G.H . and have been friends ever since . We both ended up in Corrections and always had good memories. Talked to Roy last week, and he said he was going to see Mildred. What a memorable, short but pleasant visit . Rest in peace my friend. Sonny and Deb

Condolence from Brenda & Laurie Gullison on January 28th, 2019 5:12 PM

My heart goes out to Kevin and Shawn and their families at this very sad time. It is so hard to lose a parent, we live our lives thinking that they will always be with us. It creates such a deep sense of loss that is hard to endure and to rise above. Mildred and Roy have raised two strong young men and they will have many great memories of their dad and family times to help them get through the grief they are carrying. Wish we could be there with you for support but please know that you are in our thoughts

Condolence from Kevin Brophy on January 28th, 2019 5:24 PM

Roy was a Veteran, a Correctional Peace Officer and in his heart a cowboy !
A man of principal, direct and to the point. A man you want on your side. A co-worker and freind. I’m glad I caught him for a coffee a little ways back. RIP my freind.

Condolence from J. R. Digger MacDougall on January 28th, 2019 5:42 PM

Roy was such a great guy. I remember him fondly from the gym at work. He was huge! Loved to tell a good story and keep us entertained. Loved his wife and always spoke so fondly of her which was so refreshing for a jailer. Miss seeing you around town Roy. R IP.

Saddened to hear of Roy’s passing. We were in the same recruit troop in 1959 in Borden and passed each other on occasion during various military postings. Always smiling with a good story. RIP.

Condolence from Janice Lambert on January 29th, 2019 9:11 AM

I was blessed to have met Roy through his friendship with my husband Bruce and his parents. Roy had dropped into their place in Coach Hill to ask if he could travel with them on the Trail Ride so many years ago. Roy had so much energy and brightened when he entered a room. He was so vibrant and always made me laugh. He will be missed.

Condolence from Larry Elder on January 29th, 2019 10:26 AM

Roy was a man who believed in earning respecting instead of waiting for it. A good teacher and listener. My thoughts go out to his family.

Condolence from Gloria Wilkinson on January 29th, 2019 4:41 PM

Will miss Roy – great Springbanker.

Condolence from Gordon MACKAY on February 1st, 2019 4:45 PM

Sorry for the loss of a good friend and horseman. We oth served on the LDSH riding team at the Sarcee stables. Roy and Millie attended my 80th birthday party and we had a lot of laughs. My girls enjoyed Mr Bottomsides visit as they fondly called him. The MACKAY clan wish “happy trails” to the Picadilly Cowboy..say hi to Millie for us.

Condolence from Linda and Neil Stewart on February 2nd, 2019 10:22 AM

The world is a smaller and quieter place today without our pal Roy. We will miss him, in so many ways. He was a good neighbour and a true and loyal friend. We never knew which “personality” would be on the end of the phone when he called but it was always someone interesting, with a great laugh and a funny story to tell. He once told me that when he died, he wanted to come back as one of my horses!! You’d be welcome in our pasture anytime Roy, however, I hope you have found Milly and are reading cowboy poetry some where with a great view of the mountains. Be at peace knowing you will be greatly missed.

Condolence from Ellen Alston on February 3rd, 2019 12:12 PM

I have just heard of Roy’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and Gaye. We had many good laughs together and he will be deeply missed. I am so sorry he will not be riding out with us on his paint anymore.

Condolence from Bob and Truda Whitfield on February 3rd, 2019 8:31 PM

We will greatly miss Roy at our weekly breakfasts, his sense of humor and stories.

Condolence from Leanne Landers on July 11th, 2019 12:12 AM

I met Roy in 2009 when my family moved in the old Wallace’s farm. Roy would ride up to the farm every other day for a visit and to check things out. Always had great story’s to tell and a real gentleman who loved his wife and family very much.. …tonight I drove past the ranch and it seamed rather still ..and with a bit of research I found out that he had taken the journey to the sky world. My condolences to his family and friends.
A beautiful Star has been added to the heavens.
