I loved my grandpa dearly. I will always remember his movie star smile and his passion for cruising in his “big shot” boat. His love and commitment to Grandma Jeanette always made my heart joyful. His comments and sense of humor always made us laugh and I love to continue to see his sense of humor live in my dad. I enjoyed his presence and will miss him greatly.
Roger was a good provider for his family, a loving faithful husband to Jeanette, and a man of contentment with a merry heart. Roger’s hearty laughter was contagious. He was our encouraging cheerleader and never missed a game his kids were in even into adulthood. How exciting that you are enjoying a banquet in heaven, walking and talking with your Savior, Jesus. I love you, Dad. You gave me many happy memories.
Uncle Roger your laugh could fill a room and you always had a bad joke but it made every one smile. Your joy of life and love and pride in all of your family that both you and mom have can only be instilled by a live well lived and really large hearts.. I am honored to have called you Uncle Roger! All my love to Aunt Jeanette and all of my cousins and their families.
