  1. I have so may great memories of my childhood with roger. From crashing his go cart,shooting each other with BB guns,blowing up model cars with firecrackers.we drove aunt jackie crazy. All my love in this sad time. He will never be forgotten.

  2. A gentle and quiet man, who also had a gleam in his eye and was up for anything crazy! Having six sisters he was my first brother-in-law, to me another brother. In my early adult years he was always there for me. he was my best man in my first marriage for example. He will always be my great , crazy, and lovable big brother. I\’ll miss you and if i\’m blessed i\’ll see you on the other side. Brother Jack.
