Roger was the kindest most caring man I ever known. He was also the most fascinating story teller I ever met. Listening to him was like reading a favourite book every time. He had an incredible memory and could spin those memories into fascinating tales of the past. His 25 years as an Auxilliary Constable showed he cared about his community and everyone in it. I will always have a special place in my heart for this wonderful man. Rest well Roger, there are many who will miss your big smile and quick laugh.
