I cannot thank Roger enough for being there all the time especially when we needed him most. During my last seven years of active duty in the United States Navy, being assigned to the desert in China Lake, California, and sometimes coming home only on weekends, Roger without hesitation or being asked provide the father-figure presence for my children and the much needed support for my wife Eleanor.
We love you Roger.
