Another old friend and newshound from my days in Trail has died.

Roy LaValley arrived in the CJAT newsroom just in time to cover the last of the Sons of Freedom Doukhobor uprisings in the early-mid 60s. My wife and I were dating at the time and you couldn't drive ten miles in any direction without encountering an RCMP roadblock. Interesting times.

Roy went on to work in advertising sales at the station, but in the early 70s returned to University and earned his law degree. Roy then worked for the public trustee and other Alberta government departments. He never entered private practice (save for a quick pro bono witnessing of my signature on some real estate stuff).

His obit can be found at: ... 1084986680

Good people.
