I grew up with Sherry as my best friend. Every year, when we were young, Roger and Terry would take us to the Ponderosa Zoo. It was such a small lil zoo looking back on it now, but then, it seemed huge. Those trips have always been one of my best memories as a kid.

I MET ROGER AT BELLE RECREATION CENTER A FEW YEARS AGO. ENJOYED HEARING HIM SING AND TALKING WITH HIM. EVERY TIME I HEAR THE SONGS "I DON'T NEED NO ROCKING CHAIR AND MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL" IT WILL BRING BACK MEMORIES OF OUR FRIENDSHIP.

WHEN I FOUND OUT HE WAS SHERRY'S DAD IT MADE HIM MORE PRECIOUS.

WE TALKED ON FACEBOOK AND WHEN HE FOUND OUT I WAS HAVING HEALTH ISSUES HE CHECKED ON ME QUITE OFTEN.

I AM SORRY SHERRY FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES LOSS. I WILL MISS HIM

Oh sweet cousin Roger. You always had good things to say and tell me about my dad's side of the family, some i didn't even know. Last time i saw you was at the reunion and boy could you sing. We talked through messenger. But not the same as in person. You wanted me to come see you but this darn corona virus has people staying away. I will always remember you. Love and miss you forever.

I have a lot of good memories of Roger growing up. he was always an upbeat guy that made us laugh. it's sad I didn't get to see him much living 3 states apart. but he'd always call to see how I was and talk music.... and everything else in between.
may he rest in peace.
we'll see you again
love from your cousin or I should say "little brother"

I have many memories of roger starting from way back in high school coming in his house with his daughter sherry. Trying hard to be quiet so as not to disturb him 😬. Then waiting on him and his friends at tudors for fifteen years. He always had a smile on his face and a kind word to say, well after I quit barging through his house at crazy hours 😳 the smiles and kind words were plentiful 🤣. You will definitely be missed my friend. Love you little buddy! ❤️💔❤️
