Dr. Alexander "Lex" Kerr Roy August 11, 1919 - November 18, 2005 Funeral arrangements by Sands Funeral Chapel (Duncan) In his 87th year on Friday, November 18, 2005 at Cowichan District Hospital, Duncan, BC. Born in Port Morien, Nova Scotia, Lex attended Dalhousie Medical School and then served with the RCN as a Surgeon Lieutenant after graduation in 1944. Following the war, Lex specialized in dermatology, training in Galveston, Texas and Toronto, Ontario. Lex then practiced in Regina, Saskatchewan for 28 years, moving to Duncan, British Columbia in 1979 where he practiced until his retirement in 1991. Lex is survived by his beloved wife of 61 years Miriam (Groff) and his loving children Len (Cheryl) of Duncan and Janet (Leo) of Nanaimo. Lex was predeceased within the past 11 days by his beloved brothers Ken (Marchetta) of Ottawa and Wallace (Kay) of Oakville, Ontario. His remaining brother Doug (Jean) of Halifax, Nova Scotia remains a source of strength for the Roy family. Lex will be lovingly remembered by his grandchildren Heather (Mark) of Ottawa and Devon (Tara) of Spanaway, Washington, and was fortunate to have met his two great-grandchildren Alexander and Corbin over the past two years. The many Roy cousins across Canada have been brought together over the past two weeks by this unfortunate series of family deaths. Although Les lived in the west he always remained a Nova Scotian at heart and never tired of talking about his youth in Cape Breton. Lex loved to travel both within Canada and without and was never happier than when seated around an evening campfire with his family looking out over the ocean or up to a mountain vista. No service by request, the family will receive visitors on Wednesday, November 23, 2005 for 5-7 p.m. at Sands Funeral Chapel in the Arbor Reception Centre, 187 Trunk Road, Duncan, BC. Flowers gratefully declined. We will all miss you Lex.
