Roy was always a hard working street cop. I would always see him working the streets of Boston's South End during my times working for the Massachusetts Bay Transit Police. Often times I would see Roy in court where we would exchange information on wanted criminals and their M.O. Along with his dedication to duty, Roy was also a compassionate cop and great family man. Rest in Peace Roy. I miss you and your smile!
