It is with deep regret that I inform our members and visitors of the passing of our dear friend Roy Finn. I hope you will join all of us in praying for Roy and his loved ones. This is especially for Roy’s daughters whom Roy always doted over.

His help here on this forum was always positive. I will forever be thankful of how he always had respect for folks coming here for advice. His enthusiasm for Bushnell Elite, Steiner and fine custom knives were always welcome additions to our daily dose of OT and I think our readers appreciated that.

Roy will always be in our hearts. God blessed us with Roy's presence and I am grateful.

Roy was one of the very first members here on Optics Talk. He helped set the standard of comradery and real world, professional gear advise this forum is now renowned for. Roy D. Finn's contributions here simply cannot be overstated. As a member and as a Moderator.   

Please join us in honoring a true Gentleman and a legend. 
    
Godspeed, my Friend.

Roy was indeed a great asset to this forum and a great guy.

He will be sorely missed.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his girls.

Rest in peace, Roy Finn.

Roy was a gentleman and a friend. He was one of our founding OT members and was the first person to welcome me when I joined in 2006. 

We will all miss him tremendously.

RIP, Roy!

I not exactly certain how to put what I would like to say in words. All I can emphasize is that Roy will be dearly missed here.

I'm praying for him and his family. I cannot image what his girls are going through.

Rest in Peace, buddy.
