This is sad news. Roy had been a member of PBS from it's very beginning and frequently donated alstroemeria seed to the BX. I never had the opportunity of meeting him, but in correspondence, he was wise, articulate, and kind.

"He touched a lot of people and the man you knew was the man everyone knew. 

He presented one face and was extremely genuine.  There are not many people 
who had/have as much honesty, integrity, and overall intellect as he 
did/does ("have/does" are used because that is my spiritual opinion). 

We all are missing him because there was a daily banter via email and phone 
with weekly gatherings with him (two to three times was a good week but one 
was the minimum) with his 5 kids and grandkids (14). 

This is his obituary which explains a lot of who and what he was about.  It 
was written by his oldest, Kerry Sachs." 

Roy has been my friend and mentor these past few years. It was a pleasure to know him.
