We are saddened by the passing of Roger. He was more than a brother in law to me, he was what I believed a husband, father and grandfather should be. I never knew a man who loved his family as much as Roger. He’s with Joyce now, his true love. Both will forever live on in my memories.

I am profoundly sorry that your dad has passed away. I have known your family since I was 10. You had wonderful parents. They were both in my life throughout the years and I miss them . Roger and I had a running “gag” . I would call him Roy and he would call me “Sally”. Sounds silly I know but it was our way of saying that we were friends. I will miss my friend Roger.
Lori, my best friend and Mark that little boy I used to chase around and try to kiss ( only so you would stop bugging us), your dad was special. You were so lucky. Please know that God is holding you both in the palm of his hand. He will carry you through this.
