In Memoriam - Our Dear Friend & Colleague - Roy Southworth

Monday, July 29, 2019

Van Roy Southworth
June 10, 1949 - July 23, 2019

If you went to Roy's house on a Friday or Saturday night, you were liable to run into a pack of Peace Corps volunteers, staying at Roy and Cathy's while they were doing some city R & R. "They don't get paid very much," he explained, "so we like to give them a home when they come to Tbilisi."
