We were so sorry to hear that Roger left us. We still have all our fond memories of him, his funny sense of humor, arguing with Jack about the owl, all our times together at Swan Run. He has left a big hole in our hearts, but the good news is we will see him again. We love you,Sandra and Kelli, we will be here for you. Nod and Paula

It is sad news to hear of Roger passing. He was a good friend during the high school years. Unfortunately we lost contact. My thoughts & prayers are with the family.

I was sorry to learn of Roger's passing. We grew up together in Landis, NC. He had a great sense of humor and was very funny. He was great at math, if not for his help I would have failed Algebra II. I have many childhood memories of the fun we all in the neighborhood and school had. I have not seen Roger in all the years, however his cousin Don Harkey kept me informed about Roger's journey through life. My sincere condolences to his wife and family. I know you will miss him greatly. God bless you all.

I will always remember Roger's passion for his train sets AND the incredible party he threw for Sandra. Enjoy the joy of the Lord until you're joined by loved ones.

I am sorry to hear about Roger passing. We graduated LHS together and unfortunately I have not seen him since graduation. I went in the Air Force soon after graduation and made it career. Roger will be missed by all.
