You will be greatly missed, Roy. You are the only reason I watched the show. You were so honest and didn't hesitate to say the truth. That's very rare these days. I do hope your cat will be okay without you. My sympathy to your family. They have lost a most important part of their lives.

OH NOOOO, Roy was my favorite on Shipping Wars. I loved and will miss his sarcastic sense of humor, could always make me laugh. Sympathy goes out to the family. He was the kind of person I would have liked to know. Loved his children, took care of them his way and tried to teach them the way to be. He loved his cat and anyone who loves animals has to be a real loving person. May his family know how many out here will miss him too.

My thoughts and prayers to the Garber family. This was a great show to watch, Roy was my favorite shipping war buddy to watch all the time. You will be deeply missed by all your fan's. Roy may you rest in peace brother and shine more in a better place. Keep those trucks rolling in heaven because you now have all the loads to deliver at your own pace! May God give your family all the strength needed in this grieving time.
