It is with great sadness that I must announce that our friend Mo Roy passed away on Sunday, July 13 from his cancer illness.

Mo served Scouting in this council area as a professional for over 40 years. After his retirement, he continued his involvement in Scouting as chairman of Camp Workcoeman’s support group, the Citizens of Shawtown.

His greatest strength was his professional and friendly approach to his job. Mo always supported the efforts of Scouting volunteers. You could always count on Mo!

When he retired, Scouting lost an old-time professional. With his passing, humanity has lost a true gentleman.

I will miss my friend as will those who knew him in the Scouting family.
