Roger was personable and likable, and he liked to make people laugh. We worked together at The Suncoast News. He was a good reporter. My favorite work-related memory of Roger is when I was proof-reading a front-page of the annual Hurricane section, and closed out the section. I heard a voice behind me (Roger) quietly say, “Eye on the topics?” I gasped, and opened the page again to double check it. I had missed the typo. The headline was supposed to read, “Eye on the tropics.” Thankfully Roger caught it! We had lunch together now and then. He will be missed! My deepest condolences to his family and friends.

Roger was a very likeable, funny guy. I worked with him when he was reporter at the Suncoast News. He loved playing guitar and he was pretty good. I might have a CD with some of his original music. His music might still be on sound cloud if that still exists. I remember we had a Jack Russell puppy who didn't get along with our other dogs. Roger took her in and those two were inseparable. Roger tried to teach me some tricks for soloing on guitar. I still remember them although I never got very good at guitar. The other thing I remember about Roger is that he liked to draw military airplanes... something he got from his father. Although I hadn't seen him for 25 years or so I still remember how kind he was and he didn't lose his Pittsburg accent.

I was Roger's older brother by 4 years. I had not seen him for many years, since he moved to Florida. We were born in Pgh.,Pa. We have an older brother who has passed away and a younger sister living in Australia. Roger was an avid sports writer and loved playing the guitar. I pray God wraps his loving arms around and Dad, Mom, and Buddy are there to welcome you into His kingdom.
