The Quiet Man

Roger was timeless. He was a young man with so much heart. I loved his shy smile. He was so real and down to earth. Roger was a gentleman. He told me stories one night at my house when I was lying on the couch. He put a blanket on me. He sat on a chair smoking his pipe and as I was falling off to sleep he told me of his grandfather and the sea.
I felt his light touch on my head and heard him say, in his calm
Country-like voice, “Ata girl, you go to sleep now.”
I will always remember your kind and cute smile.
I love you Roger. ??????

One of the finest individuals ever to cross my path

I knew Roger in high school although he went to Calhoun and I to Mepham. We learned to surf together with Joel Smith in 1964 and had many adventures with surfing like the one time we had a bonfire and Roger brought Guinness stout and put it near the fire because it was supposed to be served "warmed up". He was "old school" when he entered the navy choosing the "button up" style of trousers because it was tradition in his family. We lost a beautiful and gentle man when Vietnam took him from us. You are missed every day my friend.

To one who should never have been there

Roger was my age but went to Calhoun High while I was at Mepham. He was one of the finest and gentlest of all the folks I knew throughout high school. Never one to either pick or be involved in a fight, he was the one who would find a way to solve the problem without violence. Had Roger lived I have no doubt that he would have made a GREAT politician. One who was as the Constitution says is by the people and for the people. Over these many many years I don't believe that there have been more than a month's worth of days that I have not felt the pain of his loss. Roger, wherever you are , keep on fightin' the good fight and know that you are sorely missed. Your friend, Don George
