Roger was truly one of my favorites. He was a gentle giant and loyal to his friends. If it hadn't been for Roger and multitudes of rides home from school, I would have frozen to death! Rest in Peace old friend.

Roger,Roger,Roger, You will so be missed.As I think back how you with that booming voice could never whisper in class and because of that spent way to much time in detention or even worse had our citizenship grade lowered. If lowered to far and we may not be able to play in the game coming up.
The second thing I will remember was the terrific laugh and smile that lit up a room.
So many great times together and a couple we will try to forget. What a great guy.You are so missed.
