I can remember the days when you and my son Josh Shrader would walk home together from Beyer or go running for practice, after practice for football lol. You were a great kid back then and I'm sure you grew into a great man too.... I read you had a daughter :) I grew to know your parent cause we always sat together at everyone of your games! I'm so sorry you had to leave us so soon, I only wish the best for your parents, daughter and Sonja in their time of sorrow and grief.

January 2, 2013 were always a good dude. I'll never forget that week we spent in Vegas working the CES show. We worked some crazy hours and even had to sleep on the floor of the convention center that one night....then get up and drive 12 hours back home! My heart and prayers go out to your family. You'll definitely be missed.

I played football with Roman. He was the kind of guy that let the pads do the talking. Rest in Peace, my friend.

Roman, I enjoyed so much getting to know you and your family over the years. Watching all the boys grow up together, playing football, getting into trouble and just being boys. I will miss not getting to know the man you became. My heart goes out to you and your family. You will forever be missed.
