Roger was one of a kind, always full of laughter. I had the pleasure of working with him for
many years at Woodland Hospital. Loved the picking and grinning with He, Bob Hubert and Alvin Faulkner(All3 are back together now). Never a dull moment around Roger. He
loved his family, friends and coworkers. He was always checking on former coworkers to see if he could help them anyway. Sometimes tried to act like a grumpy old Grizzly Bear but was a big ole Teddy Bear. I will cherish our memories Roger!!! Thanks for the journey, and the memories. Now it’s time for you to rest. Dale Ball.
