Reflections for Sergeant Timothy Alan Roy, Sr.

On the anniversary of 9/11, I thank you and your comrades for your selfless duty and courage that momentous day. Your sacrifice and those of the victims and other first responders will forever be honored in the annals of brave men and women who gave their all for their city, state and for the United States of America. A hero in every sense of the word. Like, many you were not assigned to the towers, you self-reported. It says a lot about the kind of person you were.

He is my cousin and his sacrifice is something most couldn't do, he gave his life for others, for new Yorkers, for Americans. It is so sad that he's gone, that they're all gone, but they saved tens of thousands of people, and its thru them and his wife and kids that he lives every day.

From Kindergarten through high school we shared many classes together...Timmy always had a hint of mischief in his eye and an impish grin on his face under this incredible mop of hair... God he was such a charming little wise guy! Teachers could never stay mad for long because he really was just a good kid; friends with everyone and funny as hell. Good times my old friend...
May God be with you and your family...

Today, 09/11/2016 ~ Sergeant Timothy Roy was honored in San Antonio, Texas. Texas State Police Officer Joseph Anthony Zavala carried a placard around his neck 126 floors up the Tower of The America's (two trips up to complete the climb) during the annual Memorial climb to honor the Fallen Hero's of 09/11/2001. We shall never forget Sergeant Roy and his sacrifice on that day of infamy. We relay our continued deepest Condolences to his Family and his Department and Division of the NYPD. If the Family would like to have the placard from today, I will be happy to send it to them. I can be contacted through my e-mail.

I was just thinking about Timmy the other day, and how unfair it was for such a good man to be taken away so early. I knew Timmy when we worked in he 73 pct back in the 80's and despite the death and misery we encountered during those days he always had a smile on his face. Just prior to Sept 11 I met up with Timmy at a detail in the city (I had been transferred for a while) and while all of the other supervisors had their game faces on, Timmy, who had been promoted was the same-ole happy go lucky person that I will always remember him as, joking and laughing. Rest in peace .

On this 10th Anniversary of the World Trade Center attack, I participated in a memorial parade here in Portland, Maine. Our police and fire departments handed out signs bearing the names of fallen heroes from 9/11. I had the honor of carrying the name of Sergeant Timothy Roy. While watching the NBC national news this evening, they showed his wife and interviewed his son. What a proud moment I felt that I was able to carry his name in honor today.
As a native New Yorker,and having a brother who is a Detective in the NYPD, it was an emotional day to say the least. He was at the site that day participating in the rescue efforts, and for many days and weeks after in the recovery. But my emotions cannot compare to those who lost loved ones that day.
May God bless all of you who keep us safe, and may God bless Sergeant Roy and his family.

I am a police officer in North Carolina, this morning the local firefighters association put on the 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb in the Duke Energy building in uptown Charlotte. We climbed 110 stories (the building is only 50 stories, we climbed it twice then up another 10 stories) The event was only open to local firefighters and police officers, each of us completed the climb in memory of someone who died that day. We were given a badge with the name and picture of that person.

I was given the honor to represent Sgt Timothy Roy whom I have never met. If there is anyone who reads this reflection that knows the family of Sgt Roy or a way to get in touch with his family please email me. I would love to send them my badge.

Thank you and may you rest in peace brother.

Thinking of you today on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and remembering the last time I saw you. We were all having breakfast in Tired John's at Lake George at the end of another great holiday. You were a generous lovely man. xx
