His sister, Kathryn Roy, left this message for Karl's fans and friends on her Facebook account:
The last time I saw Karl Roy was during the Fete dela Musique in Ortigas where Kapatid performed some of their most ingenious hits, including the poignant "Luha". Aaah, those were great times, lad.
A great loss, indeed, for the Philippine rock music scene.
Rest in peace, Karl Roy.
