ROY CARRICK (article first published : 2008-08-29)

"Lighting specialist Roy Carrick (29/10/41 - 09/07/08) stole the heart of whoever he met in his life,” says producer Falonee Pillay. “He started his career at a very tender age, making and doing anything you could possibly ask for, whether it was for the circus or building robots, or television productions … eventually Roy became a lighting specialist for television and worked as a freelancer for many years.

“Completely bubbling he had the ability to never give up …. Sadly, Roy was diagnosed with cancer early this year and within a short space of time his life had taken a huge downfall – he died of lung cancer on the 9 of July 2008. He left behind his wife and kids who are still battling to come to terms of losing such a precious person.”

Due to the financial pressures being placed upon the family – an auction of Roy’s lighting equipment in aid to raise funds for his family will take place August 30 at 15h00 which follows a wake in honour of Roy’s life. The event will take place at 2 Robertson Road, Camperdown, Pietermaritzburg.

For more information contact Falonee Pillay on 033 326 1333 or 083 579 0163, fax 033 326 1628 or email: falonee@dvprod.co.za
