Joyce and family, we were so sorry to hear of Roy's passing. What a wonderful, kind man he was. Our family grieves your loss.

Roy was a "hands-on" guy, who personally helped set-up and check every test of space nuclear hardware at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL)during the 1970s, 80s, and into the 90s. I first met Roy in 1974, just prior to a solid propellant fire test of a simulant-fueled Multi-Hundred Watt heat source sphere at LANL, and then again and again during the Galileo & Ulysses safety test campaigns during the 1980s. He made major contributions to the final design of the General-Purpose Heat Source - Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generator (GPHS-RTG), which powered the Galileo, Ulysses, Cassini, and Pluto-New Horizon spacecraft to Jupiter, the polar regions of the sun, Saturn, and Pluto, respectively. Roy was a stickler for detail, and a highly proficient design & test engineer. He was also a good & decent man, who always had a smile and kind word for all those he encountered - including a young Air Force officer (i.e., me) who didn't yet know squat. Godspeed, Roy!!!
