    Just read this on a news site. Shocked. Didn't know he was sick.

    Sad to see him go, but Roy is in a better place now, spending time with Uncle Walt. Hopefully Disney will recognize him in the parks in some way.

    Re: Roy Disney Has Passed Away

    I had the good fortune to hear Roy give a talk on the Tranpac sailing race one evening. You would have thought the guy invented Christmas morning, puppies and sunshine the way he spoke with such passion for the race and the sport. Afterward he was very generous with his time and even though he was there to talk sailing, when I asked him to sign a copy of the Fantasia 2000 dvd he said it would do his heart good and he'd be happy to.

    Thank you again Roy.
