    He was a mentor. A talent unimaginable, and a gifted man. He was always a friend and had nothing but good things to say about everyone. I am truly saddened by the news of his passing. He will be missed dearly. RIP - My good man. See you on the other side.

    I enjoyed many conversation with Roger when he attended Stone House Presbyterian Church. We did enjoy a breakfast together at Honey Butters. We talked a couple of times on the phone after the virus changed our congregation visits. I wii miss him.
