Rock Icon Karl Roy Passes Away

Kapatid, P.O.T and Advent Call vocalist, Karl Roy has passed away, March 13, 2012 at 1:01 am.

The news was confirmed by a Facebook message from Kathryn Roy, Karl's sister.

"It is with deepest sadness that I share the news of Karl's passing. He was called Home today at 1:01 a.m. Manila time (Tuesday, March 13th), surrounded by those who loved him most - mommy, Keith, Kevin, Krys, his daughter Arianna, and our cousin Jack (Roy-Duavit).

Please continue to pray for Karl. He brought so much joy to others but, unfortunately, did not have enough of it in this life. He's in a better place now, with Lolo Pepe, Lola Conching and Daddy.

Thank you for your kind words and your prayers.

God bless!


The reason of his death is not yet disclosed. In 2008, he has suffered a stroke that paralyzed the right side of his body. But he has bounced back by continuous gigging and a recent P.O.T. reunion last October 2011.

His Facebook fan page are now flooded with message from fans that loved him and his music through the years.

Karl Roy is a great loss in the music industry. Let's continue praying for him and his family.
