I just now found out that Roger passed away! I am heartbroken by this news. We first met at Blacks Drive in. What a character he was. Funny, animated, never a dull moment around Roger. Never could get the hair out of his eyes! Constantly throwing his head back so he could see. LOL. We were both in Vietnam at the same time. When we got back (Roger first), we met one night and had a really nice talk. We both came back changed. More like humble. That place really humbled a person. Me, Roger and Dick became roommates for a while. It was almost impossible not to like Roger. Endlessly entertaining. What a sad day for me. My heart really goes out to his family and friends. We lost one of the truly unique characters in our life. I have so many happy and wild & crazy memories of Rog. I hope there really is an afterlife...he's one of the people I would love to get together with again -- for another nice little talk. :)

I'm saddened to hear of Roger's passing. We spent many years together in school. While we were never close friends, we were always buddies. I send my sincere condolences to Roger's family. I hope that you, like me, will remember the good times and that big smile.

It was very nice to have known and worked with Rodger over the last 25 yrs. He always had a story to tell. It was great listening to him talk about his motorcycles and all the enjoyment he had with them. He will be missed.
Annette and Jan left a message on April 3, 2012:
Roger, Last year Roberta and you visited us in the Netherlands. We had a great time together and specially in the little town of Valkenburg, which was Roger's favorite. We still recall your endless stories with always a good bit of humor included. Pretty quick after the return to the USA we received the shocking news about your illness, which ended this week in your unfortunate stepping out. That leaves only the good memories for all, undoubtedly as you would have wanted to stay in our thoughts.

Dear Roberta, Shocked as I am to hear the news of Roger's passing. I remember our wonderful dinner last year in The Netherlands. There was a lot to tell, a lot to share, lots of laughter. All good memories. As positive as you always are, I hope you'll find the strength together with your family and friends. I'll be there for you.

I knew Roger going back to 1965. we met at Blacks Drive In. He always had some cool cars. He was always changing them to make them his own. We had a great time when we were young and in school. When Roger left for Nam he came back changed. The war had made him more serious. I saw him less over the years but I have always had fond memories of our time spent in our youth. My thoughts and prayers are with him and Bobbi during this difficult time. May God's love be with both of you. Special thanks to Dick for his loving care for Roger during his last months. It was a Godsend for Roger and Bobbi. Roger now you will not have to worry about your hair anymore. It will awlays be perfect! Love Boots
