  13. Extremely sorry to hear of Roger’s passing. It has probably been 30 years since I last saw Roger, but I remember him well. He was a good Friend. Toothpicks were one of our commonalities, but as a person, he was certainly a much nicer person than me. From the comments I have read, even though he was very kind and nice from the outset, he somehow became even nicer and kinder with the passing of the years.

  14. So sorry for your loss. God has added another Angel and none finner than Roger to fill this spot.
    Was a good and Blessed man.

  17. As cool as the other side of the pillow! I am so thankful to have been able to spend thousands of hours working with Rog in the yard switching ! Him and Wings and Sputter and big Glen kept me going. Those years in the yard being called snakes by the road guys selling themselves for three times more money for the prestige of being titled CONDUCTOR ! Roger talked me down off a cliff many times! MANY TIMES
    He wasn’t just a rock, He Is a Diamond

  23. One of my favorite guys ever, I never saw him do anything that was even the least bit rude or mean to anyone but instead he made everyone feel better about themselves and built them up. I loved working with Roger as much as anyone I ever worked with….what a great Christian man he was. 🙏

  26. What a wonderful Christian man. Roger had such a great love for Jesus. When I think of Roger these things stand out, Cindy, Brian and Angie. Him going to church every chance he could, reading his Bible, drinking a big glass of unsweet tea, a toothpick in his mouth, Neil Diamond and sweat pants. I hadn’t seen Roger in at least 20 years. The times I remember were some of the best times of my life. Roger will be remembered and missed by so many. My prayers and love go out to family and friends💜

  27. I will never forget Roger he was always teasing !! So sorry he passed to young sending love and prayers to his family.
