My sincere condolences to you Jody and yours and Roger’s family. As you know I worked with Roger at BIW. He was a great supervisor to work with. Always willing to help and to do what was asked of him. A gentleman as well.
I enjoyed our conversations on fishing and hunting, but especially snowmobiling. If I remember correctly he was a Polaris man and me being a Cat man we had some fun rib poking
Thinking of you and your family

Roger was a great friend ,we shared many days hunting at Tripp lake for ducks and Otisfield for deer, Roger was always excited about our Sunday ice fishing trips on pleasant lake in Casco, we would take my daughter Megan and his 2 boys Chris and Nick. His sister Lynne and husband Rick, would come with us when they moved up here in Maine, they all had fun and always had full bellies. four wheeling and snowmobiling was a recreation that he loved to share with his sons and grandchildren , he shared memories of his family in Connecticut with me and of course how well his boys were doing for themselves and their families, he was so so proud of them. I loved Roger and the great memories that he has left me with and the friendship that can never be replaced ,Dam I will miss you buddy
