    Only found out today about the loss of Roger. I knew him my entire life through his in laws the Griffins, as they were more than just family neighbors, but more like extended family. There was never a more kinder person that never met a stranger and aways put their best face forward than Roger. He made the most positive impression on everyone he ever met. He will be truly missed, but always remembered for his true goodness. My condolences go out to Sharlene and his family at this time. — Rod Demahy

    Roger was the kindest, most soft spoken person I have ever known. In the forty plus years I have been his sister-in-law I never once saw him angry. I never meet anyone who did not absolutely love him. He was always ready to laugh, go fishing or do what Sharlene ask him to do.
    I’m so glad you are healed now “uncle Groger” . I’ll see you again.
