Roger was a good guy he may looked tough but he was a teddy bear. I met him thru his friend's years ago Frank and Diane the owners of the Vonder Inn. We played darts and he like to talk to everyone he will greatly missed by friends and family, when he found out he was having a baby he was so excited. He loves his Harley and the grandbabies he always talked about them, his puppy will miss him, he was spoiled out for rides on the Atv, ran the house as Roger would always say. Well God is getting a great guy!!! He will be missed.
God Bless and my condolences to the family.
