Roy Denner

Roy Denner

Roy is remembered by the off-road community as a true champion and leader. He worked and lobbied tirelessly to preserve public lands for OHV access until his passing in 2009. Denner founded the Off-Road Business Association (ORBA), a nationwide, non-profit trade association dedicated to this mission. Prior to starting ORBA, Roy became active in land-use in the 90’s as a member of the San Diego Off-Road Coalition, where he was the Director of Land Use.
He also served as a member of the California Desert District Advisory Council, as well as the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area Technical Review Team. For his hard work and dedication, Denner was named the 1999 OHV Volunteer of the Year by the California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division. For many years to come, off-roaders will benefit from his extensive dedication fighting legal battles so countless others could recreate.
