Roy Leake. June 22, 1959 – July 17, 2016

From Deborah Van Ells: Roy suffered from sleep apnea. On Saturday, July 9, early morning, he stopped breathing. His partner called the paramedics, but even with their help, and the hospital’s, Roy’s brain was deprived of oxygen for too long. At the advice of the medical staff, yesterday, July 17, Roy’s family removed his breathing tube and let nature/God take over. Roy passed away just a few hours later. His family was with him, and dozens and dozens of friends came from across town and across the country to say their goodbyes to this extraordinary, talented, funny, smart, generous, man, who was such a delightful combination of sentimental and scathing.
