I didn't know Royce very well, though I saw him around the guidance office plenty. I needed lots of guidance.
Interestingly, his next door neighbor in Lakewood was a fellow named Bud Storms, who told me (when I worked with Bud at a downtown Jamestown dental lab) that Royce was ruined by going to graduate school and learning to play the guitar.
I say interestingly because music and guitar playing became his passion. So much for the wisdom of Bud Storms.
Rest in peace Royce. Sing a duet with Joe Rushin for all of us.
