Mr. Roy – Facilities Manager

Everybody loves Mr. Roy. For fifteen or sixteen years (“so long that I forget”), Mr. Roy has been fixing everything inside and outside the HSELC facility. “I’m amazed at how creative kids are in how they destroy things,” he says. “Over the years I’ve realized that they can break the unbreakable.”

In addition to his ability to fix things, Mr. Roy is beloved for the personal interest he takes in the center and everyone in it. His ability to listen is as legendary as his ability to fix things.

Mr. Roy spent 20 years working at Grumman Aerospace after spending four years in the Army. He finds the atmosphere at HSELC to his liking. “I love the kids and the staff and the parents. We’re family,” he says. His children went to HSELC, and now his grandchildren attend.

In a tribute that only kids could come up with, the children named Mr. Roy’s truck “Mr. Roy” and his tote “Miss Sue.” It’s all in the family.
