I was one of Rogers supervisors during his many years at Southwestern Bell, and of all the hundreds of employees that I worked with, Roger was the one of nicest guys. Always pleasant and brought a smile to the room. Roger talked often about his wife Shirley, and I know from conversations, that he loved her and took pride in taking care of her. It was a real privilege to have known Roger. Jim Darrah

Roger will be missed at Hy-Vee. He was such a nice gentleman with always positive things to say. And he was always caring for others, we need more Rogers in the world. Sue from Hy_Vee

Roger was one of my favorite neighbors. He was always available to stop and talk. I feel very privileged to have known him.

Scott and I were very fortunate to have known Roger. The immaculate what he kept his yard put us to shame time and time again! I will miss his two-handed waves as he came through the cul-de-sac.

We are going to miss him tremendously in the neighborhood
