Roy E. Disney Dies at 79

Walt and Roy Roy Edward Disney, the nephew of Walt Disney, has died after loosing his battle against cancer. He died this morning. Roy has been a protector of the Disney brand, first helping his brother Walt to build the company and later in revolting against the powers  of two of the company’s chief executives from the Disney company. Roy has fought hard for the Disney values set by his brother over the years. Some of these battles brought great and wonderful results for the Disney company and himself. He has been the driving force to convince the company to invest in new technology for their animation department. He work on the new Fantasia movie and devoted 20 years of his life on making nature movies.

He will be truly missed, but remembered by many. Thank you Roy, for looking after the Disney magic.
