Roger was my brother in law, who I loved and respected very, much. I would say that he was a mans man. I hate to hear of his passing, he will be missed by many. Love Bill

My most sincere condolences for the passing of Roger. We were blessed to have met them a year before we bought their house in Arlington (where we currently live). We feel his presence and that of Del's every day in our lives. They were kind souls who are in the presence of God. May their lives be celebrated with loving memories of what matters most in life...God.
