The family of 69 year-old Roy Galvin from Alverstoke have paid tribute to the Royal Navy veteran who sadly died at QA Hospital in Cosham this morning.
Roy was being treated after he hit his head on the road following a dispute on the one-way system on Bury Road in Gosport at around 5:50pm on Sunday (September 25).
Roy’s family has requested to be left to grieve in peace, but his widow Deborah has issued the following statement:
“Roy was my total companion and we had a lot of fun sharing our lives together. He was incredibly intelligent and very, very, funny. He just loved life and was my best friend in the world.
“Roy retired from the Royal Navy in 1987 and had so many friends in the local area. Everybody knew him when he walked the poodles.
“He was my entire world and was very loyal. He was a wonderful husband to me, brother, and thought the world of his nephew Grant. We will all miss him very much”.
