Thanks my friend for a lifetime of memories. Thanks for being an amazing grandpa to Karissa, Brittany, and Cody. I will never forget our Friday nights watching you dance with the kids or the look on their faces when grandpa got home from work. The years of hunting and camping. Thank you for your service and sacrifice for this great nation, YOU ARE MY HERO and a huge reason why I still serve. I will miss the phone call during the next Army / Navy game. Thanks for the “old bull - young bull “ guidance. I have learned so so much from you. I was thankful to have you as my father in law, but most of all blessed to call you my friend.
Thanks for being a boss, a teacher, a mentor, and a confidant, and most of all a friend. You touched my life in so many ways and I’ll carry your spirit until we meet again. So I’ll leave you with this memory.....
We’ve seen the world through your eyes, now God is, I hope he’s buckled in and I know he will enjoy the ride!!! LOVE YOU OLD BULL!!!

Roger, Roger, Roger. Boy are you going to be missed!!!
You were such a gentle, caring, giving, compassionate, loving friend! You were always ready for camping and hunting trips. You would tell your stories and jokes for hours. You would do anything for anyone EXCEPT pull their feet or elk up the hill. (Haha!) Everyone called you ‘One Shot’ One shot and your deer or elk was on the ground! And you were there many times with your Jeep to pull our Jeep off a stump or out of any situation.
We love you Roger. We have been so blessed to have known you and Linda.

Roger was always kind to everyone. He had a special place in his heart for animals, especially birds. He was best friends from childhood with Terry Quiroz (My husband), and even tho they had not seen each other in years
When Roger and Linda moved back to the Valley, it seems thier friendship started right back where they left it as teenagers. Terry could never have had a better friend in life then Roger. Roger was more like a brother than a friend. He will be missed more then words can say. I know for Terry. life won't be the same without Roger. We both love Roger and Linda so much.
