  • To Roger’s family:

    I extend my deepest sympathy. I grew up in the same neighborhood as Roger. We spent a lot of time playing sports together as kids. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

  • So sorry to hear of Roger (Pippy) passing. Was thinking of him the other day as I was going through old photos, of him and my mother, Phyllis, back when they were kids. My thoughts and prayers goes out to the family. God Bless.

  • Diane and family, so sorry to hear of Rogers’s passing. He was always so nice when you would come in the doctors office. My sincere condolences to all of you.

  • Patsy & Doug Brenneman Sr.
    Diane & family sorry to hear of Roger’s passing, I always enjoyed working with Roger or playing softball. He always gave it 100% I remember that cold winter day he fell on the ice at the lumber yard and broke his leg, he couldn’t make any one hear him with all the noise, but threw little gravel stones at at the office trailer until Sylvia heard them quite a feat when you are laying on the ground with a broken leg in near zero weather. He was a very hard worker, and I know he was proud of his family. May he now rest in peace with God!
