    Roger was truly a wonderful guy, one of the very best people I have known. My favorite memory of you, Roger, was back when I was a kid and my father furnished a car for all our hockey teams to travel in. When the car was too full, you would take me to the Harbour Restaurant, and we would be all set to watch the evening games. I am sure some people thought I was nuts when I gave you a big hug when we saw each other again after many years, a couple of years ago at the KOC. A peach of a guy, you were – I will miss you Roger.
