Roy was a good friend, neighbor, and I worked with him for 5 years. He hired me but I don't hold that against him. Linda and I keep Teresa and family in our prayers. Much too young. God Bless

Mr. Gould was an amazing man! I remember my first time meeting him 23 years ago. He was charismatic, funny and he helped me make MCCF my career home. He jokingly called me Channel which would instantly put a smile on both our faces. Roy will be genuinely missed. My deepest and heartfelt condolences to his family. Thinking of you, sending healing prayers and comfort during your difficult time.

I’ve known Roy and his boys for over 55 yrs. My girls grew up with Ryan and Russell and had many fun vacations over the years. Theresa my dear, you made Roy so very happy over all these years. When he met you, his entire outlook on life was an explosion of happiness. He loved you without measure. He will so seriously and deeply be missed.
