Rod & Family, Deepest sympathies on the passing of your father.

Gary and Sharon Fisher on Jun 10, 2018

Fellow classmate and a great friend that truly will be missed. So many great memories of camping trips and the State Fair. I have to mention one such occasion, Roger hated shorts, so when he fell asleep in his chair, we rolled his jeans up like he had shorts on. Roger could meet anyone,young,old or in between and make friends. He will certainly be missed!!!! Gary and Sharon Fisher.

We will miss his smiling face and friendly hello. Thinking of you Gloria.

Gloria....I was sorry to hear about Roger's death. Back in our younger days, he always had the time to stop and visit with me. He was a class act and fun to be around. At a time like this, a friend told me there are six words: Look IN, Look OUT and Look UP. You look within yourself for ways to handle the grief. You look out to family and friends for support and you look up to God for all of the obvious reasons. Thinking of you with prayers. joe mcdermott

So sorry for the loss of this gentleman. More like an uncle than cousin. We always had such fun when we'd come visit in the summers. Will definitely miss his witty personality!

One of the funest people the world has known

Deborah Vance on Jun 7, 2018

So one of my earliest memories, I was 7 or 8 I guess. I was at the Iowa Sate Fair and Roger & Gary Fisher took me out & about & they bought me a bull horn. I used the rest room & left on the back of the toilet & when I realized it was gone they took me back, but it was already gone. I cried & cried, I can't remember but I think they went & bought me a new one. There are many more wonderful memories. He was always willing to help out others & support when someone needed help or money. Holmes Christmas Auction, Wright Co Fair Wood carving & many many individuals benefit auction we did he was always there setting right next to Gloria. Very seldom did I see them apart. He will be greatly missed.
