I remember Roger as my brother Wayne's friend when we lived in Weymouth when I was young. He was always kind to me and I remember his big laugh when they were goofing around. Our mothers stayed good friends their whole lives, so I often heard news of your family. He lived a good, productive life and I am sure you will have many warm memories to share. My condolences to Marguerite and the whole family.

As a young teenager who was fascinated with big trucks, I remember as young boys we could always count on Roger and the Red truck he drove at that time to blow his horn every time he drove by the Mullen home. As years passed by and I became a member of the Weymouth Fire Department, Roger became known as a man who was always there for his community and one that the department always looked up to. To Rogers family, our prayers are with you at this difficult time.
