Sad News: Veteran T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Videographer Roy Crogan Passed Away Christmas Eve

If you have ever been to a T.R.A.F.F.I.C. conference you have probably seen Ft. Lauderdale based videographer Roy Crogan manning a camera at the rear of the conference room. I was 

saddened to get a note from Danny Pryor today letting me know that Roy had passed away Christmas Eve at the age of 73. Pryor (VP of the Rodan Media Group) credits Roy for introducing him to T.R.A.F.F.I.C. co-founders Rick Schwartz and Howard Neu in 2006 and they in turn hired Pryor to do their web design work. Pryor said, "I will be forever grateful to Roy for the role he played in my life and career."

Roy and another popular videographer for his company, Kay Johnson, were fixtures at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. for years. Howard Neu told me he first met Roy

and Kay when the Neu family needed to put together a high school basketball video that would showcase their son Ray's skills for college recruiters (Ray would go on to play college ball at Florida Atlantic).

They found Kay Johnson and were so impressed with how nice and accommodating she was that they decided to to hire her and Roy to document T.R.A.F.F.I.C. conferences. "Roy did such a great job that we made him our permanent videographer and "historian" for T.R.A.F.F.I.C.," Neu said. 

Neu's partner Rick Schwartz added, "Roy was just a mild mannered Videographer and Photographer that was top notch in everything he did. He will be dearly missed and I really hope we all learn that every moment we have is a precious moment. Life is short and I think we are seeing that more and more.

Roy Crogan is survived by wife Margaret and son Scott as well as a granddaughter. Our condolences to the family and Roy's many friends.
