Clem Roy Ends Battle With Cancer
Written under: Human Interest, Politics
Best known for his colorful character and enthusiasm at the Capitol building, Clem Roy, has finally ended his battle with brain cancer.
Aged 64, the Republican, who is a fervent lobbyist for tobacco, was hospitalized at the Helen & Harry Gray Cancer Center last week and has finally bid goodbye to the world earlier this week.
“No guy enjoyed life more than Clem every day – every single day,” says former state Republican chairman Richard Foley. “Always had a story. Always had a joke. How many ways can you say unique? One of a kind. He was a man about town. He drank deeply from the cup of life. He knew restaurants. He knew bars – everywhere in America.”
It may be true that discount baccarat cigars have lost an ally for now, we know that his legacy and memory will always live on through his family and friends. Rest in peace.
