We were surprised to hear of Roger's passing but those of us duplicate bridge players had often wondered how he was, where he was and when we might see him again at a bridge tournament. I have good memories of what a genuine person he was having known him since early 80's and as Barbara Schindler remarked in her memory, we would see him so many places outside of duplicate bridge. Her memory reminded me of also seeing him at the Post Office back during his roofing days and then years later when he was working on a graduate degree. He made the most out of life even though he had been dealt a bad hand out of his service in Vietnam. I was glad to hear all of the family stories at the funeral home and extend my sincere sympathy to Mary Ellen and all the members of his loving family! Bette Maffucci
