Passing of the last decent man in the Disney empire. The satanic bunch of misfits market their filth disguised as "wholesome" entertainment and Roy will turn in his grave.

I worked for him for 17 years. He was a gentle, humble and generous man, who surrounded himself with good people, who held good values. Through his life's work he touched a lot of people across the world. My heartfelt condolences to to his children, grandchildren and many friends. Those who knew him will certainly miss him.

Roy Disney was well loved and admired by all in Feature Animation at Walt Disney Pictures. His contributions to our longevity were great.
He was friendly, down to earth, had a good sense of humor and loved Disney animation.
My condolences to his family.
