My condolences to the family, Roger will be dearly missed. 
In the years I had known him, he was a kind , gentle soul who my children were blessed to call him grandpa and will cherish the memories they shared with him. 
He always had a sense of humor. I remember one of the first few visits I had at his and Kim's home , I asked him if I could smoke in there and he said no very seriously and then sat beside me and lit a smoke. Then he laughed after a few minutes and said yes. He always was joking with me like that. 
Thanks for laughs Roger, the talks and the advice. You will be missed.💞
