The Late Great: Roy Baron

You can learn a lot from the obituaries. Sometimes they are entertaining. Enlightening. Sad. Often they teach us a lesson about how to make our own lives richer. "The late Great" is Daybreak's newest feature. Where we will meet some great people. And celebrate their life stories. This is Joyce Baron. Her husband Roy passed away last week( Feb 6th). Roy was a large presence in Kamloops. But-here-I'll let Joyce tell you his story.
