  3. Dear Mrs. Latham and Family, I was very sorry to hear that Mr. Latham has passed away. He was such a great dad to Kathy and all his kids and I always had alot of respect for him. Please accept my sincere sympathy.

  4. To Dorothy and the Latham family: I am very sorry for your loss. Royce was a great guy and I always really enjoyed his company and doing business with him. He was a friend of mine and I will miss him a lot.

  5. Royce attended Carlisle Military School, Montgomery College, and the Merchant Marine Cadet School in San Mateo, California. After deploying as the Purser, his ship split in half off the Aleutian Islands in the frigid, stormy, North Pacific. Royce was a bat boy for the Washington Senators, an electrical engineer during the design and construction of the La Crosse Nuclear Reactor, a real estate broker and co-founder of Citation Homes, Inc. Royce played running back at Carlisle, a school where Shoeless Joe Jackson had pitched years before. During his youth he met the 8’4″ Giant Al Tomaini while hitchhiking through the south. Despite having a large family, we always took a 2 week summer vacation where we would fish, crab, boat, swim, and water ski. I learned carpentry, landscaping, sports, wiring, gardening, the work ethic, and discipline from my father. May he have peace after his struggles and appreciation from all who love him.

  7. Dear Dorothy & Family, Please accept our deepest condolences and sympathies to your family for the loss of a loving husband, father and co-founder of Lathams. I have not had the honour to meet your family, but through my wife and son, my inner instinct tells me all I need to know: Mr. Latham Senior was as good a man as they come and together with you, Dorothy, he raised kind, righteous, upstanding children such as Royce Junior. His legacy of fine values, work ethic and virtues is carrying on through his children and gifted grandchildren; his gift of wonderful childhood memories to your children alone is a Crown Jewel above all treasures and riches of life. Mr. Royce Latham Senior has moved on to a higher plateau in the Circle of Life, the love he has bestowed upon his loving family will keep them warm through the winters to come, cherishing memories for future generations. All the love and blessings from the Pongs. Stanley, Sharon, Kate, Olivia, Audrey, Alison & Andrew.

  8. Dear Dorothy, If I hadn’t known Fred whilst living in London I would not have had the pleasure of meeting the Latham Family in Vienna. You welcomed me as a long lost friend and treated me as one of the family. Your generosity and kindness was above and beyond anything I have ever experienced and I cherish the memory and often think back to those special days I shared with you. Royce was a beautiful man, someone to respect, admire and adore and I will never forget him. My thoughts are with you, Daniel, Royce, Kevin, Kathy, Karen, Mark and Cindy. Sincere condolences, Pru
