CandleI remember Roger and Sharon would come to visit us back on the farm when I was a kid. I was always amazed that my parents would drink right along with Roger and Sharon as we didn't have lots of drinking at home then. As the nights continued, the stories become more interesting and louder!

CandleWhen Roger was 13, he had his dog trained to run as fast as he could for 50 feet and then leap right into Roger's arms.

My Sympathy to Roger's family. Having worked with Roger at the post office i was fortunate to get to know him I can say I don't think he ever had a bad day. The fact being he was uplifting to a lot of people. I truly enjoyed the times we were working together. So many stories I remember. Roger, you were one of a kind. RIP.

My condolences to Mike, Sue and their families. Roger was a neighbor and a colleague of my Dad on the Police Department. Roger served his community and his country. His family should be proud. May he Rest In Peace.

Very sorry for your loss. Roger was a very kind man. I always enjoyed when he would stop in Dels cafe back when I worked there.
Many thoughts and prayers to all of you.
