Here are a few reactions from Facebook:

Suzuki Method Northern Ireland
Thank you so much David Royce-Gerry for all your amazing work for SECE research and the whole of the Suzuki world. I had the pleasure of hearing David speak at the 2013 Convention in Matsumoto and he was incredibly inspirational. Sending lots of love to his family and friends.
Symphony on the Bay
Rest in peace, our dear friend and inspiration teacher and musician, David Royce-Gerry. There is a place in our orchestra-family heart that you will always occupy. We extend our sympathies to David's husband Jonathan Royce-Gerry, mother Lucy Gerry and all of David's family, friends, students, and colleagues.
