Please accept our deepest condolences. John and I shared many laughs with Roger playing darts over the years. He was a very kind and fun to be around person.I was very fortunate enough to have him on my dart league team for many years. Roger always knew the right things to say to make you laugh.

Roger was always such a humble man with such a loving and kind heart. I've known him for basically my entire life and will never forget him. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family which has always been practically family to us to The original Mill Rock family. I'm sure he's up there playing darts with my Grandpa, Dad, Sandi and Rosco and drinking a cold beer. Rest in peace Roger.
