He Will Forever Be Missed
B. Roy Huggins
This site was created in memory of Roy Huggins who touched lives deeply, instantly. He was like a warm, gentle gravity well.
Roy touched lives deeply, instantly. He was like a warm, gentle gravity well.
If you were our best friends talking to him up to minutes before his death, or you knew him years ago in high school or undergrad or grad school or Japan or on the ORCA board, if you so much as took a 30 minute Facebook Live course from him, he touched your life, and you felt how special he was, and how great a loss this is from the world. Even in the sense of opening up the Platonic feelings of “too soon” and “why the good ones?” and “can be so sudden”.
You have my absolute permission to grieve him. You have my absolute permission to talk here or on your post about how he affected you. He shaped lives and changed trajectories across continents and oceans. He was momentous. His heart warmed entire buildings. Of course you can grieve. Please share him with me.
