My sincere sympathy to the D’Avignon family. Roy was one of those people who always said hello when you crossed paths. I remember playing baseball with the family when we were all young. Rest in peace.

To Roy’s family,

My sincere condolences to Roy’s entire family. I worked at Mt. Abe for 7 years and saw Roy almost every single day. I liked and respected him so much! Roy was a good man. He was a very quiet, polite, and unassuming man who was dedicated to his job and to the school. He worked very hard. I did not know about Roy’s passing until today (Saturday). If I had known in time, I would have attended calling hours or the funeral mass. Please accept my sympathy and know that I will always remember Roy.
Sincere regards,
Paulette Bogan

The Addison Masters Swim Club has missed Roy since he left working at Mt Abe. He took wonderful care of the pool at Mt Abe and of us too, saving our forgotten towels and suits and letting us know where to find them. The pool cleaning robot doesn’t and will never be able to replace Roy, but we will refer to it as ROY. A donation in remembrance of Roy is being made by the swim club to Mt. Abe pool.
