My sincere condolences to Mr. Armstrongs family. I knew him as Roy for 70 plus years and we were teamates on the Peterborough Orfuns football team for at least 6 years. In 1956l Roy was the team scoring champion.He won that by running for touchdowns and kicking converts after scoring. He may have kicked field goals as well. Roy was a great guy, a
A gentleman who could also be a tough customer if he was pushed. A great rugged defencman too when he played Junior B and Senior B hockey.I didn't see him much the past 20 or so years but will miss him..
