Chuck and Lynn Hall, September 16, 2021 I met Roger when he worked with Bill Sportsman. I was so honored when Roger allowed me to be his realtor. We worked together for many years. He was tough but he taught me so much as well. He could always make me smile with his quick wit. We had some good times and I will miss him so much! Sherry Smith, September 15, 2021 Our thoughts and prayers are with your family during this time of loss. Danny and Nelda Luna, September 14, 2021 Thinking and praying for the family during this difficult sad time. Prayers for peace and comfort. We will definitely miss Roger!! My neighbor and our friend. I have heard lots of great stories about this man. I know they will live on in our wonderful memories of Roger. Till we meet again my friend. Pamela Jeffrey , September 13, 2021 Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. May God give each of you the strength and comfort that we all need with the loss of a loved one like this, He was a great brother, husband, father and grandfather to this family and a very special man that never held anything back because he was always to the point with all that knew him. Big Daddy Rog will be truly missed by all that knew him and my wife will miss sending him what Rog called “The Goodies”. He seemed to always like my wife’s baked goods and I, myself, will miss his laughter, direct statements with no filter and the advice that he gave me over the years along with all the conversations that we had.
