Roy Selby Tribute
A tribute to
5th October 1944 to 19th Nov 2013
Class IX, HACS, OEC, FEBC, DSEC
Roy Selby has left his body after a long running battle with Myelodysplastic Syndrome, leukaemia. Roy decided, after his last treatment, that it was not worth it to continue on with it but that it was time to end cycle and move on to a better game.
Hospice was called in and with their help Roy was able to get through the cycle and after 7 days the body died.
When asked Roy what he would like in his Obituary he said he wanted no long winded, self serving Obit but to keep it simple, time, place, form and event.
Roy was a mainstay of APIS and a true leader. He was a staunch supporter of standard tech and would brook no reasonableness in his adherence to the philosophy and technology of Scientology. No one says it better than Roy:
"One thing I realized sincerely is that us early trained Scientologist have a huge job to do. We aren't done yet. Body death is our enemy. We are all in our latter years and death could win if we let it. I am one of those guys, and I am not modest about it. We MUST TRAIN AND AUDIT OTHERS TO APPLY TRUE TECHNOLOGY IN THE FUTURE, ONCE WE ARE FORCED TO LEAVE AND START OVER. The original tech must further mankind to freedom of aberration. The new stuff by Miscavige doesn't work. Fighting the church may be some forte, but not for me. I need to train and audit others and help my peers. Believe me, this small group of unknown in the FZ people need help and (this next word is an end word to some) organization to do its job. Training and processing ARE available by these veterans is waiting to further their agenda of the future. LRH's postulates must be furthered. This above is why I am still here and plan to continue for some time."
Thank you for being with us Roy and for your support and encouragement and for your unswerving dedication to the tech and to Ron. Happy trails in the future and may you continue to live in exciting times and enjoy new challenges.
In memory of Roy
