    I worked for Roger briefly in the office, just before the takeover. He was friends with many of my friends, and the one thing i will never forget, is the way Roger loved to “let go” on the dance floor 🙂 and how HAPPY he looked while doing so! Keep dancing wherever you are Roger!


  6. Darlene Moore says:

    When my parents moved from the “hill” to the “flats” Gloria and Roger were the two kids I hung out with. As the years went by we lost touch but I did run into him at a bingo hall and he came up and talked to me. We reminisced and had some good laughs.
    My deepest sympathies to Nancy and family. Gloria and Roger were “Good People” and have passed away much too soon.
