I knew Roger for a different reason. I met him once about 5 years ago. I was his biological daughter placed up for adoption. I recently learned of his death and I'm very sorry to hear about his loss.

I worked with Roger at Firstco. We used to talk daily, I still find myself waiting for his call or reaching for the phone to see where he's at. He is truly missed and it's not the same without him. My prayers go out to his family.

I'm very sorry to hear about Roger. I worked at Cadillac Lanes and Roger and Nancy bowled in a mixed league there. He was so nice and was a person who would give the shirt off his back for someone. Far too young, what a loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
