Thanks for posting the link !
Just came into my email from youtube but it is 2012 dated so that means Royce is now 100 or nearly so?
Dad passed away at 98. He is missed.
Thanks for posting, Ignacio.
Well that was nice to have seen that! Royce my condolences. He was obviously well liked and loved. I don't think the apple fell to far from the tree. My dad is 83 and a Model T guy. I am so happy that he can still get around and enjoy the tours.
Great story & nice to be able to see you're dad!
One of the strangest things I noticed in my own chapter is that by a huge majority, the men outlive the women. So if you are a lonely widow looking for a guy - join an old car club since there are lots of left over guys out there and they make pretty good husbands. OK I am playing matchmaker but life is too short and T's are too much fun to drive them around with any empty seats.
A dear friend in our club lost his wife and we all miss her still but after a period of time he started showing up at events again. His daughter was married to a guy whose mom was alone. He met this lady and invited her to come along on a Model T club event. Everybody thought she was a hoot and so he began getting invites that also asked him to bring her along too. On one bus ride to an event that we all were on someone discovered that the lady was wearing an engagement ring - yep and their kids stood up for them at the wedding. So mom married the father in law and the mother in law married the father and yes they are all living happily ever after.
Royce I really envy you having your dad for so long but I also am glad for you too. What a nice life he had and to have so many friends.
Royce was a good friend. I met him in 1948 when he lived in Minneapolis near me. He worked for Braniff Airline. When Braniff moved to Dallas, I bought many of his extra Model T Parts,
Sorry for your loss Royce, I feel lucky to have met him, first class.
Royce he sounds like a great man and his son carries it on. A Youtube algorithm somehow put 2 and 2 together and put the video into a email announcement to me 5 years after it was posted. We live in interesting times.
That was wonderful. I am sorry for your loss. My Dad passed away 1-1/2 years ago and missed celebrating his 98th by only 3 months. I also miss him very much.....he was the reason for me getting in to early cars and away from hot rods.
