So sorry to hear of Roy’s passing. I will miss my Risk partner. I always enjoyed talking about engineering stuff with Roy, he had a very practical and sound approach to solving engineering problems, and usually had a very funny story to go along with the topic of discussion. All my love to Marilyn, Diana, Alan, Mike, Gary, Dan, Matt and all the kids. I’m very sorry for your loss. Roy was a good man and he will be missed greatly. Kyle Infante

In memory of Roy Magee.
Roy was truly, ‘One of a Kind.’
He was always up-beat and one of the most colourful people I ever met.
Time spent with him was never dull I am proud to say a very good friend. Marilyn, I am sure you are grieving and will miss him. Take solace in knowing you were a good wife and were always there for him. He was proud of his boys and their accomplishments and he loved to wrestle with them at the drop of a hat.
Roy was a good coach and contributed much to Youth Hockey in the area.
It was the highlight of the season when we would visit the Tree Farm to pick Christmas Tree with Andrew’s boys.
Those great poker nights were always a blast where he seemed to beat me out. To this day I am still trying to figure out how he did it!
Then there were those times he would let me raid his asparagus patch.
Roy most definitely leaves a big hole and will be missed greatly.
A good friend,
Andy West
