  1. Roy was always there. Ever since I came to Geelong 33 years ago and joined the Geelong Community Orchestra (now Orchestra Geelong) Roy was always there contributing as a playing member for over 30 of those years. It was great to see him in the audience and talk to him after OG’s most recent concert in December last year. In all that time Roy has been the model of consistency, always giving it his best, and a real gentleman. He will be greatly missed.
