I was shocked to pick up the Addison Independent today and read that Uncle Roger has passed away. I could not have asked for a more kind and loving Uncle. My heartfelt condolences go out to Aunt Kay, Michael, Diane and Scott. Wishing you peace and comfort to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts. He was a wonderful man who showed my brother and I love and understanding when we needed it the most.

Sorry to hear the passing of Roger, He was a good neighbor and I missed him when moved.
Yes he loved cars, got his advice when I purchased a Honda. Asked a question on it and after got a real good history about it.
