Condolences to Roger's Family.He was such a nice fellow.Didnt know a stranger.......I consider myself privleged to talk to him at length during the bad weather at Mardi Gras.I had been following his career since the seventies.If heaven can get any better....It will be with him there.
I was sad to hear this. I met Roger & made several jumps with him about 20 yrs ago. I think it was at the Nationals in Richmond. Or Z Hills. I don't remember. He & I were almost the same age. He was a great guy. He will be missed. Pat
Very, very sad news. My wife and I met Roger (after hearing about him for years) at Quincy during one of the last boogies he organized there. We were wandering around after dark just enjoying the night after a long day of jumping. Roger came out of his RV, saw us, and immediately came up to us like we were old friends. He asked us if we were having a good time, if we needed anything, etc. Say what you want, we lost a pioneer...I didn't agree with everything he did but he was a wonderful human being. Please be careful under canopy folks...it's just a sin to lose people under fully functioning canopies.
