Kelton and Spenser, may God guide you through the coming days, months and years as you go through life without your precious dad. He raised you to be strong men and I know how proud he was of you both and of his grandchildren. I have so many memories with him and he will always hold a place in my heart. He did some world traveling and he looked so happy in the pictures he sent me. He even told me of his upcoming travel plans and was excited about Spain and going back to Colorado. But now he's in the most beautiful place of all, in God's arms. Rest Easy Toyota.

To Roger's Family,
I met Roger while working in GCCISD. He was always so nice and the students seemed to appreciate his presence. He was never without a smile.
Hopefully, you have great memories to share for years to come.
Sending heartfelt prayers,

I met Roger through Houston First Church of God. We both attended the school Tower Christian Academy. Fast forward to our teen years and we were both deeply involved within the youth group. We went one step beyond that as we had a very tightnit friendship that consisted of 6 of us that we were together every weekend night and whenever there was any free time we hung out every week. I will always treasure those years and am honored to have been a part of Rogers life. My sympathies and prayers are with his family.

I never had the chance to meet Roger in person but I was able to chat with him a few times on messenger. We were both in the DD12 reader group. He was a very kind man. Spoke very kindly of his family. I remember one chat in particular where he was very excited to visit his family in Colorado and go hiking. I was never able to meet up with him when he was there. I wish I had.
You have my deepest condolences in the loss of a wonderful, kind man. I’m so sorry for your loss.

Roger.. I remember the many conversations we had while in session. We talked about your love of hiking and your family. Many adventures your shared with me, going to the highest mountains you could find to challenge yourself. Now my friend.. You can hike the highest mountains you want without getting stiff sore muscles that I had to brutally(with love of course) work out. I will miss you my friend and our like-minded conversations, I will carry them close to my heart. My condolences to your family.. Be free! Sincerely, Kim Walker, LMT

My condolences to the Park Family! I met Roger when he was 14. We attended the same church and his Dad hosted a men's Bible Study group in their home weekly and I attended at least two years. As a single man, I was often asked to join the family for a weekly meal ahead of the Bible Study so I got to know Roger and his family pretty well. Roger was always endustrious and worked along with going to school. He often would just grab some food and then take off for his evening work assignment. He was always polite. I know his Mother is glad to see him. But the rest of the family will be filled with saddness at his early departure. My love to each one of you! The Rev. Dr. Max Argo
