I worked with Roger at New Stanley Elementary School and enjoyed many conversations with him. He was a kind man, generous with his time. He was always there to help. I certainly enjoyed my time with him. Roger was a good person.
May God comfort you.

Roger and I were classmates and graduates of the Class of '66 Argentine High in KCKs. We were both drafted and entered basic training at Ft Bliss Tx on the same day 9/15/ 67. I have never forgotten a 15 mile full gear march we on at White Sands New Mexico when he had a leg injury and had to stop. I helped Roger get off the trail and he was taken to the hospital. The injury looked severe and I never forgot the pain he was in--We were just kids being sent to where the Army wanted to send us. We went different ways from there and we bumped into one-another a few times over the years. Never forgot Roger and always have thought of him and our friendship those many years ago.

I would like to thank Roger and Melinda for spending so many Christmas Eve’s with us. It took several years for the girls to figure out why Roger missed Santa’s arrival every year. Thanks for all the memories.
