Comments:

Over the past few years I have had some amazing opportunities. In 1997 I left a job and bicycled across the US. In 2000 I backpacked the Appalachian Trail from GA to ME. 2006-2007 was spent as Director of a small Quaker school in Monteverde, Costa Rica in the cloud forest. I retired from my career in public education in NJ after 28 years in 2013 and moved to AZ where I serve as Director of Professional Preparation Programs and Chair of the PhD program at Prescott College. Subsequently, I became Dean of the college. In July, 2016 I left my full time roles at the college. Currently I am serving as a very part time Associate Faculty member working with some masters and doctoral students. I have been very active in trail running, cycling, kayaking and rock climbing circles. Pretty much I find time to be out and active daily and compete in a marathon or ultra about 10 times per year. I am really having a lot of fun at this time of life. My "transition" plan for my second attempt at "retirement" is to go to Spain for two months to hike the Camino de Santiago. Update. I did hike the Camino and it was wonderful! As a result I ended up volunteering in Costa Rica for the 2016-2017 school year. In 2018 I volunteered in an albergue in Spain on the Camino, traveled a lot, and continued to work with graduate students. No idea what is next.

As others have said, Roy was a great guy.  Roy and I were very involved in the gymnastics team every year during our time at UDHS.  We worked out every day, including over vacations.  We were both sort of science/math nerds and were in almost every class together, including Calculus and Physics II during our last year.  We were together every weekend, along with a few others, in each others' houses, cars, etc.  That same group went to the beach together.  I remember Coach Covington suspending us both from the gymnastics team because we cut practice one day due to the amount of homework we had.  I think of Roy often---one of my bank accounts has the security question, "Name of  best friend during high school."  I write "Roy" every time I open that account.  Roy and a few others really defined UDHS for me and gave me my best and most vibrant memories.  May he rest in peace!
