I worked with Roger at Blackstone/Valeo for many years, as a co-worker and as a credit union committee member. He was very supporting in his position. I do appreciate knowing him and Sandy.
Our prayers for the family. I know he will be missed.

To Sandy and family, I am so sorry that Roger didn't win this battle but I praise God he has won the victory! I had planned to attend his memorial today, but find I won't be able to make it. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you mourn his passing.

I am very sorry for your loss. Roger was a great guy and always greeted everyone with a large smile and kind words. I had the pleasure to work with Roger and Dean at 'The Dirty Pebble" or Blackstone many years ago. It was an interesting work environment. My thoughts and prayers are with the whole family.
