On the 24th April Roy passed after a short illness.

His son Anthony has asked for this message to be posted:

“A huge thank you to everyone who sent cards and wellwishes for Roy’s 100th birthday. It gave him and all the family an enormous lift as unfortunately he had to spend his birthday in hospital after being taken ill at home shortly before.
I’m very sorry to say dad died peacefully the following day, surrounded by his family and the cards and momentos so generously sent by his fans. We’re all going to miss him enormously.

Bless you all, Anthony Cross

We might put together a page of rememberance in a few weeks. If you have anything you would like to share about Roy please use this site to send us your message and indicate if you are happy for it to published publicly on this site, if not the message will just be passed on to Anthony.
