I have many fond memories of Roger. He was an extension of my grandma, Sophie. Sophie took care of Roger in the 80s and living down the block from her, I visited them often. The home where they lived was a Dworczak homestead on 18th and Grant; where my father, Tom, and many other Dworczaks were born.
I remember stories grandma and my dad told me; that Roger wasn’t expected to live very long due to his CP and how when there were parties, the family men would stop by and pick him up to take him down the stairs before there were lifts.
I hope the Dworczak clan will remember all the family deaths and memories during our reunion at Greenfield Park on august 2, 2014.
Peggi and Kimberly, May Roger rest in peace. I cannot attend the funeral as I will be out of town. My best wishes to your families.
(Sorry I don’t have photos of Roger, but I do of the Dworczak sisters, including Roger’s mom, Helen. Sophie, Helen, Francis and Clara)
My condolence on the loss of Roger. I remember him enjoying watching baseball.
My memory of Roger takes me back to 1940’s. Playing together with his cars & trucks on the floor. Aunt Helen & Uncle Ziggy had a 12″ TV where we would watch programs like the Howdy Doody show in black & white.
