What sad news. As has been already said, such an easy going and pleasant guy to deal with and passionate about Ospreys. This cancer thing is getting scary

I only met Roy a few times he was a real gent who loved talking about Ribs. He gave me so much help and information,his enthusiasm certainly left a mark on me. Will be sadly missed

Very sad news. Roy was very helpful to us and obviously knew and cared so much about Osprey and RIBbing in general. Condolences to his family.

Roy Bishop Mr Nice Guy...

How sad the big C has claimed another great guy. I have good memories of working with Roy at Ribex and Osprey, we always had a good laugh together. You will be missed by all.... R.I.P. mate.

Very sorry to hear that. Roy was such a huge help in putting together Seawolf from a great distance, I never met him in person but spoke to him numerous times by phone and his passion for his boats was obvious. Condolences to his family and friends from the deep south - RIP.
