  1. Many tears and a terrible heartache is within me. I feel the loss for friends & family as I know he held nothing higher. I pray there is peace for you. I didnt go to school with him, but heard so many stories of mischeif and friendship – amazing. I didnt work with him, but felt like I knew Drew inside and out! I also did not get to throw darts with Roger very often, but heard soooo many stories about mark and shawn! Truly treasures he talked highly about. I did have a wonderful love from him. Once in a lifetime love. I will cherish him all my life. He does fly with angels and our son – see you both one day!

  2. I am both shocked and saddened to hear of Rogers passing. I knew him from back at PCC in Pueblo Co where we were both PCC Sentators. I remember hanging with Roger in the old student center each day between classes playing fooseball. He was a great guy who had a great sense of humor.

  3. I am so sad and shocked to read of Roger’s passing. I was looking for him on Facebook…still hoping to reconnect after all these years. I will always remember him fondly. My prayers are with your family!

  4. I went to Park Hill with Roger. He was my first boyfriend in highschool. I have fond memories of him and Sarah both! His smile and laughter could light a darkened room! He was so much fun to be around and always knew just what to say to a friend when they were feeling down. He will be greatly missed by everyone who ever had the pleasure of meeting him.
    My family always felt that Roger and Sarah were part of our family. My mother was saddened to hear of Roger. She loved him like one of her own sons.
    I tried to make the trip up to say my goodbyes but the weather and road conditions have gotten so bad that I won’t be able to make it. Please know that you all are in my heart and prayers during this difficult time!

    Love to you all,
    LouAnn
