Subject: OBIT 9th Feb 2016 Roy Harris
With Great Sadness I have to Break the News that....
Roy Harris passed away early this Morning .

Roy's health has been poor for some time.
But just recently it had become far worse.
On a personal note Roy and Elaine have been Close
friends of Pat and I for many years.
Our thoughts are with Elaine at this time
and Neil and Anne and Their family.
Roy was enormously proud of his Family.


I first met Roy in the Cardiff Folk Song Club .
To my great fortune it was the first Folk Club I went to.
Roy was a fine singer and made a GREAT contribution to the World of
Folk Songs.
He just Loved Traditional Songs and Music .
He was always ready to help and encourage people who were interested .

Over the years he made countless friends throughout Britain and America............. We will all miss him and his contribution
to The Folk Song World .
I am finding great difficulty writing this and I am beginning to ramble.
I am sure that his friends will be able to put things much better than I.

But we have Lost one of THE VERY BEST ..............
