I use to work out in a store in Bridgehampton.He would come in quite a bit.He was not a snob or anything.He was an average joe just living his life.I used to talk to him all the time.I remember one wintery day and it was freezing outside.He came in shopping and I asked him why he wasn't in L.A. where it was warm?He said he lives here all year round and he loves it.He was a true East Ender.R.I.P. Roy.You will be missed by many including me.

I got a call from Roy when I owned Spector Signs in East Hampton. He was very exacting about his sign for his house. When I installed it he got upset with me because he wasn't informed that I was doing it. After a brief discussion he took me for a tour of his home on the ocean. He was really a nice guy. It is wonderful when famous people do not let there fame get in the way. I saw him again last year in the Sag Harbor theater and we had a short chat. I will miss you Roy. Victor

If you're going to use someone else's name-at the very least; learn how to spell it!

Doesn't anyone remember how he would block any projects that not only involved transmission of power to LI, but alternative means of power generation, such as the off-shore windmills that would ruin his view, despite being MILES off shore. He did everything he could to keep his property values up, despite how much they'd compromise the lives of "little" people.

I have met Roy on numberous occasions in East Hampton and found him to be so kind. My thoughts are with his wife and family, whose loss is greatest. He, like a lot of the celebrities of that era, knew he was human like everyone else. Money and fame didn't make him any better a person, but he used it to do good things for his community at large. It's a shame that more people can't learn from his example, and those like Billy Joel, Danny Glover, Tom Hanks and others who share Roy's humility and spirit. Roy's spirit will live on in many.

The kind of man any kid would want for a father, any homeowner would want for a neighbor, and any actor would want for a cast mate. We will all miss him, but his family has suffered the deepest kind of loss. May the thoughts and prayers of those who loved Roy for his kindness and his work help to ease their pain as they work through this difficult journey. In time, they will be able to turn to their special memories, which will always live on in their hearts, to keep Roy close to them and ensure that he will always be a part of their lives.

Why is it that slimy, sleazy nitwits like you have to come out of your sewers to post asinine comments? I guess stupidity doesn't run through your life on this gallops at breakneck speed.

Roy...JAWS is the best movie of all time. I was 12yrs. old when it came out and scared me so much, I didn't swim in the ocean that summer. You are a great person and will be missed. I remember the times when we would run into each other on the Hampton Jitney bus on the way home from New York City. By the way..."That's some bad hat Harry!" Good bye Roy..."Farewell and adieu to you fair Spanish ladies..."
