This is very sad news.

I had the honor of working with Royce on the 14.1 Challenge events at SBE, it was my honor to get to know him. He really was a kind man. Always so supportive of us and our events.

My condolences to his family.

rest in peace sir

Steve

Royce was a nice guy. I met him several times at the OB factory. I was just a customer who bought a shaft and several tip replacements. Each time i went to the factory I enjoyed talking with him and Doc for 20 minutes or so about the cue and pool industry. He was open with information and his opinions and he never gave the feeling I was taking up his time. A class act.

I am shocked and deeply saddened to hear of Royce Bunnel's passing (OB Cues). He was far too young!

It's really hard to believe.

My condolences to his family and friends. R.I.P. Royce!

Man..............

This came as a total shock to me. Royce was a young and energetic soul who brought passion and integrity to the billiard industry. He made so many friends in his years with us for his kindness, respect and knowledge. This is a huge loss for all of us and so unexpected. It reminds me of when we lost Jerry Franklin years ago. He was also young, energetic and well respected by everyone who met him.

I spoke with Royce only a couple of weeks ago about my OB cue that I sent for repairs. What a super cool guy he was. Royce was a great innovator of new products and designs and moved the cue making industry forward. I'm shocked and sad that my friend is gone. Life isn't fair sometimes.

I can imagine how devastating this is for Royce's family and my heart goes out to them. They should only know how highly regarded Royce was.

I wish I would have met Royce. From the stories I have read hear today it sounds like he was a great friend and a person. God speed Royce and positive thoughts to his family.
