Obituary of Paul A. Roys

Paul Alan Roys, a dedicated professor and esteemed chairman of the physics department, departed from this world on October 24, 2023, at the remarkable age of 97. Born on April 3, 1926, in Chicago, Illinois. 

Paul's life was a testament to a deep love for the pursuit of knowledge, a commitment to education, and a profound sense of family. As a professor and chairman of the physics department, he left an indelible mark on the academic community and the countless students he mentored. 

Paul will be profoundly missed by his loving children: Dean (Eloise) Roys, Joan (Kevin) Paumen, and Neal (Julie) Roys. He also leaves behind a legacy of knowledge and a commitment to excellence that will continue to inspire and guide those who had the privilege of learning from him. 

Paul was preceded in death by his loving wife, Norma L. Roys, whose companionship brought immeasurable joy to his life, and their son, Mark A. Roys, who was a source of pride and a bond of deep affection between them. His parents also preceded him in passing, their guidance and support leaving an indelible mark on his journey.
