About James Roy

It is with sadness that I must report that Jim Roy, a constant contributor to this forum, had passed away on June 28, 2016 in Ottawa, Canada. I was alerted to this via e-mail from Joe Palangio who heard the news from Robert Palangio.

While I could not find an obituary for Jim, I can say that he was the son of Ernest Roy and Ellen Palangio. Born in 1947, I understand that Jim had a career in southeast Asia working for an aid agency and met his wife there, and had two children. I am sure that there are others who read and contribute to this forum that may know more about him, and I welcome your thoughts and comments.

As a past contributor myself who has done (and continues to do) extensive research on the Palangio families that came from the comune of Frosolone and its neighboring hamlet (frazione) of San Pietro in Valle, I can only hope that I can pick up the mantle Jim carried and read through/contribute on a more constant basis for those coming here for information on those who immigrated from this small slice of Italy to places such as New Jersey, Rhode Island, Ontario, upstate New York, and many places in between. These immigrants with surnames such as (but not limited to) Palangio, Sardella, Fazioli, Mainella, Mastropietro, Colaneri, Fraraccio, Ianiro, Di Nezza, Paolucci, and Tasillo (just to name a few) contributed greatly to the expansion and growth of North America, and it is here that we honor and remember them and their ancestors.
