    A better friend and wingman could never be had. Roger was generous, courteous and always ready to lend a hand. If there was ever a need for assistance, ideas or just a hand….WHO YOU GONNA CALL? Roger He will be missed

    Roger will always be remembered at 7pm when I call Dessa at supper time. She chose wisely when she chose him to be her husband. He was loved by many . It is so nice to know that he went to heaven although we were not ready to let him go. The only thing is we know he is no longer in pain. Rest In Peace Roger. You will truly be missed. We will take care of Carmen or our sister Dessa.

    I knew Roger from his time at the railroad. One of the nicest guys I knew. A true gentleman and scholar. Our sympathies to the family. He will be missed.

    We will always cherish and remember all the good times we shared with y’all when Ron was stationed in Warner Robbins. Jimmy was just a little boy. Spending time with y’all is what made us decide to have a baby and start our family. We loved you then and we love you now. Roger was an amazing man, full of fun and laughter. He will be missed by all. We will keep you and your precious family in our thoughts and prayers. We are so deeply sorry. We send our love and comfort. Love you always, Ron and Kay
