Those who knew Roger know that he had a passion for bass fishing and took his Scout boat out to the Miami Garcia Lake as much as he could, and he has the pictures to show it! Otherwise, he would travel back to N.Y. during deer season to hunt with his son Rog and his brother Paul. Roger was taught at a young age by his dear aunt’s how to yodel and how to perfect the wave in his hair which he always had a comb in his pocket to make sure it was perfect. Roger also loves to take care of his homes with updating, repairs, rebuilding and of course his lawns that he always wanted them to look the best, and he received numerous compliments that his lawn was the best on the street. Roger also was known to work and basically rebuild cars such as his Barracuda and then Mona’s Mustang II, he also talked about his rebuilding a camper from inside to outside. Roger loved his family and friends, and we made the annual trip north each year to visit with all that he could fit in each year. Roger is pre-deceased by his parents, Delbert, and Helen.
