Roy was my favorite on the show. He was kind but firm. He knew his business of hauling and always got the job done the best.

Roy was our favorite man in the shipping war. I can only hope for his peace in afterlife. He would be missed because to us, the audiences; he is not only a great performer in the show, but also an inspiration, an example to all of us of a great man with his soft side with muffy, his great work ethic and experiences that we all can learn.

My deepest sympathies to his family and friends. Heaven now has the "Perfect" shipper and handy man. You will be missed by all who loved him.

Roy was a no BS kind of guy and I appreciated his honesty and no holds barred attitude. It is a complete shock to find out he is gone. Roy, I am and will always be a big fan, undoubtedly the show will never be the same, and I may not even ever watch it again. Don't put up with any BS no matter where you are...RIP man.

You will be greatly missed, Roy. You are the only reason I watched the show. You were so honest and didn't hesitate to say the truth. That's very rare these days. I do hope your cat will be okay without you. My sympathy to your family. They have lost a most important part of their lives.

OH NOOOO, Roy was my favorite on Shipping Wars. I loved and will miss his sarcastic sense of humor, could always make me laugh. Sympathy goes out to the family. He was the kind of person I would have liked to know. Loved his children, took care of them his way and tried to teach them the way to be. He loved his cat and anyone who loves animals has to be a real loving person. May his family know how many out here will miss him too.
