We've known Roger since the 1970's when Roger lived on the first floor of a duplex we shared during medical school in Columbus, Ohio. Roger attended our wedding, visited us several times in our current home state of Minnesota, and we vacationed together one winter in Grand Cayman. We have countless memories of good times with Roger and are shocked and saddened to hear of his passing. Our sincere condolences to family and friends who Roger's life touched. He will indeed be missed. With our deepest sympathy, Jan and Chris Peterson
