Nothing but fond memories of growing up in our house. It was a wonderful loving childhood. Roger was always the big brother I looked up to. Strong work ethic. Never quit. Go after what you want. Great example for a younger brother to admire. He loved his family uncondionally. Always with a positive attitude. I will miss him dearly

I was so blessed to be the only girl with six brothers. Roger was my oldest brother, and my hero. I have loved and looked up to him my entire life. I still cannot believe he is gone, but he left me with so many wonderful memories and life lessons. He was a tough cowboy who never gave up and never complained. Again, he was my hero and I will miss him for the rest of my life, but I am so thankful that God gave him to me as my brother💔

Miss him. So many fond memories of Roger at the Delaware State show. Always had great halter horses. Such a devil look in his eyes at the shows.

Roger and I had a lot of fun together at shows and when he would come visit Donna Crossman, Mary Ellen Coenen and myself Jacqui Alcox Carrington. He showed halter horses for Robert Light and myself. He loved hanging out with all the girls and Ralph Martino. I truly loved him. He was funny, soft spoken, and loved his Border Collies. The world is less of a place without him.
