    I received this from the Los Angeles Times:

    Los Angeles Times | Dec. 16, 2009 | 11:01 a.m.

    Roy Disney dead at 79

    Roy Edward Disney, the nephew of Walt Disney whose commitment to his uncle's creative spirit prompted him to mount revolts that led to the unseating of two of the company's chief executives and a revival of the studio's legendary animation unit, died this morning at age 79. He had been battling cancer.

    Disney toiled for years in the shadow of his famous uncle and his father, Roy O. Disney, who behind the scenes ran the business side of the Walt Disney Co. for his brother. But Roy E., the quiet man in the cardigan sweaters, would emerge as a forceful protector of family traditions.

    A great man who fought hard for the Disney company to be the best it could be. He will be missed. Thanks Roy for all the years of hard work.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    This is sad indeed. May he rest in peace. :'(

    Btw...does anybody find this a bit coincidental with it being only one day after the anniversary of Walt's demise?
