    It is so sad that Roger is gone. He was my cousin and our family used to visit Uncle Lester, Aunt Hazel, and cousins Roger and Keith on their farm in New Paris, Indiana for many years. I will always remember Roger’s great sense of humor and his love of cars! My wife and I send our sincere condolences to Roger’s family and friends.
