A separate thread to avoid confusion with the existing get well thread.

Unfortunately it is reported that Royce has died following a severe heart attack.

I sure enjoyed chatting with him at the SBE events.

A truly great man has left his family, friends, and our sport.

Godspeed, Sir.

best,

Rest In Peace, Royce. I'm completely shocked to hear this. He was a hardworking and dedicated man, who brought a lot to the billiard industry. Always friendly and easy to get along with. I know that he will be sorely missed.

Sad to hear about Royce. He was a game changer in billiards. I know he changed my game when I started playing with an OB shaft.

Royce, we'll all be playing again soon. You bring the shafts, I'll bring the chalk ;)

Sincere condolences to Royce's family and friends! Always took the time to say hello to me and my wife! Great loss to the pool world. He built a unique company where he was an innovator, and loved the business.
RIP Royce

Royce was very cool to me. I recall when I made a comment on AZ about wishing OB would make a stiffer shaft and he emailed me and said "send me your address" - so was launched the OB Classic. I always thought he was a true gentleman in our dealings and was impressed with his "outside the box" innovation and honesty. His professionalism could not be be questioned.

We lost a man who did his own thing and did it very well. Royce, you will be missed.

Didn't know him personally but ingot the feeling he was a honest straight shooter (as was stared in the get well thread).

Very sad indeed, my condolences to his family and friends and all the best to his company and associates.

RIP Royce
