So sorry to hear of Mr.Roger passing. He was such a wonderful man. He would come to my house and help with my twins and bring his animals. I remember he found two baby deer and named them after my twins Drake and Drew. He will be missed by many. Praying for Mrs Alma & family. We love y’all.

I will always remember Roger as a kind, pleasant fellow who rode the school bus with me back in our school days. Then, about 3 years ago, I met a different "Roger"... the actor and retired educator! He was such an accomplished, polished man as an adult, who was the guest speaker at a Lions Club meeting. I learned things about him that I never knew...especially his equestrian talents! But the kindness, pleasantness, and humility were still there. I will miss Roger.. May the Grace of Our Lord be with his family in this season of their loss.

Roger was my cousin-in-law and it seems like I have known him forever. He had an interesting and full life and always seemed to have a smile and a tale to tell. He and my mother are responsible for my having to institute the "1000 point rule" in Rook. May he rest in peace and may God comfort Alma, Mitch, Cody and all who loved Roger and mourn his passing.
