RIP Roger I met you for the first time at your cousin Pops (Bob Duquette’s) house before he passed and everytime I saw you We would chat and every once in a while you would get an expression on your face that I could swear I was talking to pops. Tell them I miss them and will miss our occasional chats RIP

I am saddened by Roger's passing. He and Marlene were always two of my favorite people even when Roger used to send me up a 30 foot ladder in the pouring rain to install an antenna. I always appreciated that they trusted me enough to baby sit you kids. Please accept my sincerest sympathy.
