He was soulmate, best friend, and husband to wife, Paulie, who died in 2005. They were business partners in Paul Ford Photography Studios in Kitchener for 10 years, and then the Green Acres Inn for 48 years. A Charter Member of his much loved Kingston-Frontenac Rotary Club, he loved travel, gardening, great food, The River, and boating in his classic wooden boat, the Paulie C. Roy leaves behind his daughter, Heather, and her family: Paul, Laird, Chauncey, Daniel, Courtney, soon to be Baby Girl Barrett, and many friends.
