Great guy, many good memories.
My Daddy was the best man I’ve ever known. He was kind and caring and he loved to help when he could. He was committed to anything he did and followed through no matter what. He served his Country and his fellow man. He loved to play golf and pickle ball. He raced a dirt track car back in the 70’s with his brothers. He loved racing and drag racing! He has 2 great grandchildren as well. He loved to get together with family for cookouts, horseshoes, washers, and Mexican dominos! He loved the show M*A*S*H! He was just a fun well loved mad and he will be greatly missed.
I am privileged to count Roger as a friend. I worked under him at Camp Robinson with Bowhead. He was always a gentleman, and a great guy in all respects.My prayer is that God will comfort his family and friends.
Roger was a great logistician who shared his knowledge and expertise. Roger seemed to always have a great spirit about him. He was calm in crisis and showed how common sense would prevail eventually. Rest in peace and know your example of doing the right thing was admired by many.
