Roy Disney

Roy Edward Disney, the nephew of Walt Disney, died Wednesday after a yearlong battle with stomach cancer, according to a Walt Disney Co. spokesman.
He was 79 and without him i doubt Disney would be making animated films anymore. During the 70's and 80's he kept the animation department and fighting with studio heads at the time (Ron Miller, Walt Disney's son in law and later Michael Eisner).
Roy's father was Walt's brother and co-founded the company.
