So sorry to see this! I had the pleasure of coaching volleyball with Royden at George Street 10 years ago (James was on the team). My thoughts and prayers to James and his family.

Such sad news. Our condolences to the family. I remember how kind Royden was to me…when I was a teenager I was riding my bike home from Three Bridges and the chain broke. Royden stopped to help & drove me & my bike back to Chipman. Thinking of you all during this difficult time.

I got to meet Royden in the Fracture Clinic after one of his orthopaedic injuries. He was always such a joy to care for. I’m terribly sorry for the loss of this lovely man with such a large personality. My heartfelt condolences to the family.
