Roger was a good friend during high school as we sat beside each other in many classes. Amazing how bonds like that falter. No matter how often I wish I would have looked Roger up, we never got together during the ensuing 35 years. God’s peace be with family and friends left behind. I am sure he shared his sci-fi love with others as it was a major love early in his life that we shared. I remember specific discussions during Mrs. B’s English class as seniors with Brendan and I.

Miss seeing Roger so much. He was a great Computer Repairmen. He wiped my son's computer a few times because he would go places he wasn't suppose to and get virus. He probably didn't charge enough but we paid him whatever he wanted and extra sometimes. Such a great person. Sorry for your loss. Love him and his caring ways.

I can not believe that Roger is gone. He was a great supervisor and even better person. I send my condolences in case I am not able to make it back to Kenton in time.

Some are born to move the world —
To live their fantasies
But most of us just dream about
The things we’d like to be. -Rush, losing it-

I believe Roger lived most of his fantasies.

May God's peace be with Roger's family. He was a classmate, a friend, and one of the nicest people I've ever met.
He introduced me to some cool new music - he always knew the new bands. We worked together at Atlas Industries.
Even though we had not seen each other for several years, I still considered him a good friend.
