On Wednesday (12/10), I received an e-mail from Roy’s daughter, Amber Evans, that Roy unexpectedly died of a heart attack last weekend in his sleep.  Roy Evans was a participant at Lindy in the Park, and he had been planning to make it to Lindy in the Park last Sunday.

Amber would like to invite any friends in the swing dancing community to attend a celebration of Roy’s life, to be in San Francisco on Saturday, December 20, 2008, 4:00 PM at 3368 Jackson St (at Laurel).  Call 415-624-5569 or 415-388-7053 for more info.  Memorial donations may be made to “Knowledge is the Key” 200 Davey Glen Road, Belmont, CA 94002 to benefit Roy’s friend, seriously injured in a bicycle accident, or a charity of your choice.  On-line condolences may be offered at www.vmpandco.com
