We Remember

ROY, Christopher

Passed away unexpectedly in Abbotsford, BC on Wednesday, June 3, 2015 at the age of 37.  Survived by his two daughters: Ireland and Sydney, and the mother of his children and his close friend Victoria Roy of Red Deer, AB; his parents Rob and Brenda Roy of Kelowna, BC; his sister Michelle Collie (Ted) of Kelowna and their children Zachary, Maya and Liam.  Also survived by numerous aunts, uncles, many cousins and a vast array of friends.  Chris will always be remembered for his infectious laugh and smile and his ability to make us laugh. He had a massive capacity for love and always cared about the lives of others; especially his two beautiful daughters that he deeply cherished. He will be dearly missed by all of us.

The Roy family would like to thank the ICU Nursing Staff and Doctors at Abbotsford Regional Hospital for the very special care provided for Chris and in supporting the family with great compassion.

There will be a memorial service and celebration of life this summer at a yet to be determined date.  Should family and friends so desire, a memorial donation may be made to the Foundation House of Victoria BC for the great work they do, cheque made payable to “Umbrella Society” 512 Cecilia Road, Victoria, BC, V8T 4T7.    For those wishing to send a condolence, photos or share memories, may do so by scrolling down this page to the area called “Share Your Condolences.”

    I was a facilitator at foundation house and at Christmas Chris asked if he could help at an event for inner city kids, the two of us set up a massive net full of balloons for a balloon drop. I believe we did it 2 years in a row. Chris really wanted to be with his daughters, and he tried so hard. He is with my savior now.
