Online Condolences


  1. Oh my god
    The good always do go first
    I’m so sorry

  2. So saddened to hear about Roy’s passing. My sincerest condolences to Roy’s family, fiancée, and all those affected. I was fortunate and honored to know Roy from law school. He was so kind, warm, genuine, and generous to me especially when my boyfriend at the time unexpectedly passed away in my first year of law school. He was really present and empathetic and I could not thank him enough. We ran into each other a couple of years or so ago, still the same kind man. Roy will be sorely missed. Thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  3. Roy was Santa Claus to my Mrs. Claus in our third grade Christmas Play. He defended me that year when someone made fun of my velcro sneakers, telling our classmate that velcro sneakers were better because you can’t trip on shoelaces. His energy and friendly spirit will always be remembered, and may more parents encourage their children to embody that spirit.

  4. Dear JANN Family,
    I was surprised and saddened to read of Roy’s death, on a recent search of the Watson Website.
    I remember Roy and his sister Kelleigh when they were students at the nursery school where I was on staff. They were cute kids, and the blue eyes added to their charms! When you reminisce about early childhood students they are forever frozen in the wonderful world of being three, four, or five years old. Seeing Roy’s name brought back 30 year old memories. Roy will be forever ‘un’FOUR’ gettable!
    Please accept my sympathies on your loss.

  5. To the JANN family,

    I was so saddened to learn of Roy’s passing. I remember Roy and Kelleigh when they were enrolled in the nursery school where I was on the staff. They were such cute kids… and those blue eyes certainly added to their charms! The ages of three, four, and five years are special ones… to me Roy will be forever four and ‘un-four-gettable”. Please accept my sympathies.

    Since 1st grade he would light up any room with his personality, smile and charm. Roy had a piece of my heart the minute I met him as a little boy and has been in my heart ever since. Please know your family is in my thoughts and prayers everyday. Roy I love you

  9. To Roy’s family – My sincerest condolences. I haven’t seen Roy since high school but I remember him being very funny. I went to the Jr. Prom with him and I still think it was so sweet of him to ask me to be his date. I was so incredibly shy and he was such a gentleman.

  10. To Roy’s Family ~ I am so sorry for the loss of your son. Roy and I used to catch frogs back when we were young and both lived at Village Park in ep. We lost our friendship when I moved to Bristol, but soon after he did too! We had run into each other a couple of times as adults but I will never forget the little blue-eyed boy who taught me how to catch frogs. I am so sorry. ❤️
