Cindy, Bonnie, Linda, and Karen. I’m so sorry for the loss of your brother. Roger was always a warrior, which your parents taught him to be as well as the Marine Corps. I always loved that about him. He stood up for what he believed in no matter what. Roger had an iron will. That hard exterior always hide that soft gentle side of him which I always knew was there all along. Michael is exactly like his father in this way. May Roger rest in peace. Peace and serenity to your entire family during this time.

Roger was one of my old friends, we worked together at the bus garage for a few years. What a guy, he could do anything, he took pride in what he did, his country, and always had the safety of the kids in mind. Yes, he did play and live life hard, but he would do anything for anybody. I will miss seeing him. May god bless your soul, and your family.
