Roger will be sadly missed by my Husband and myself. We went to Camp and Roger was try his very best to teach me how to fly fish. He said to me "the only thing I don't want you to do is hook me". Well don't you know that I did exactly what he didn't want me to do. I went to cast and it went straight behind me and right into his coat. He lovingly gave me a big smirk and said " what are you doing?' I politely said "well fishing off course". We always had goods times with Roger and Terry. We love them both and will always hold them close to our hearts. God Bless them both up in heaven and may the Family be rest assurd that they are together once more.

I worked with Roger at Facility Services and I don't have a specific memory, but I remember his smile whenever he came to the office. I offer my sincere sympathy to all of you during your time of loss.

It’s with great sadness that we will not be attending the celebration of life for Roger since we will be out of town. We want to express our deepest sympathy to the family. Please known our thoughts and prayers will be with you as you celebrate him on Saturday.
Our fondest memory of Roger and Terry was to always see them dance so beautifully together. We can’t help but think they are dancing together again.
