When I was still in high school, I bought a recliner on credit, from Roger. When I was making payments on the chair, he had gotten a catalog with a new price on my chair. He didnt have to tell me, but he subtracted the amount in the new catalog. I paid it off and this gave me so much confidence. He didnt have to do this, but he was very honest. My sympathies to Mark and all of your family. He was a true gentleman.

Our sympathy to the Jaster Family on your loss of Roger. We was a good friend and will be missed. Ed was our gas man for many years while I was growing up. He always had gum in his pocket for us when he stopped.

Bev & Family, Roger was a fighter through and through. He made more up hill climbs in his life than most-always getting to the top of each one. He was a true gentleman and such a proud server of our country. May you all find comfort in the stories/memories shared. Our deepest sympathy, Michelle

So sorry to hear of Roger passing. He was a dear friend. I believe the last time we visited with you both was at your house several years agio.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you Bev and your family.
