Jean and family, I was sorry to see that Roger passed away. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family in your time of mourning. I knew Roger from Pratt since the 1980's, I was his Union representative for many years.

Very sad to hear that Roger has passed away. Our deepest condolences to the family. We spent many summer days playing horseshoes and golfing with him. Roger was one of the conerstones of Nason's beach in the sixties and seventies. Your horseshoe partners Gerry and Albert.
