I remember Roger (and his sister Joanne) as they lived down the street as we were growing up in the south-side of Cambridge. A couple of years older, he seemed to be as solid a guy as any one I knew. Later, I some interaction with him in the banking business. About that time, he married Nancy, a long time girl-friend of mine. I was glad that she found a good guy, as she deserved one.

To the Bennett Family,
My wife, Marie, and I are sorry to hear about the passing of Roger. I am so glad to have had the chance to visit with him in May and have the opportunity to discuss his past accomplishments, especially his military service. It seemed to me that he had had a very fruitful life in talking to him and he seemed to know where he was destined to be traveling to, his final Home. God bless your family and Roger on his final journey - Pete Madsen Family
