Roy lived at the address on that anglewinder until his passing. He frequently raced with the MMARC AKA Glenwood club as it was only a couple of miles from home. Rockford was a couple of hours away. I met him in the early 60s  when he raced at our routed basement track that was part of the MMARC rotation. I was given his routed 3-lane track around 1978 and we raced on it for a few years where Roy dropped in a few times to hang out. He introduced me to R/C, but that's a whole 'nother story. During his time 'in the slot', Roys designs were emulated by the club's racers as they evolved.
