    Barry and Brent, we are so very sorry to hear that your dad has passed on, you were our neighbors next door for many years, Roger was always good at keeping his yard perfect, and we will never forget the pickup load of corn that he brought in for all the neighbors every fall., or coming home to see him setting at the table on the back patio and laughing while watching our big Irish Setter Mac take and tear all of my shorts and t-shirts off the clothes line, you all were some of best neighbors we ever has, rest in peace old neighbor.

    Sorry to the family of Roger for your loss. I haven’t seen Roger in a long time, we were close friends at one time, along with my wife Joan and my family. Lot of good times together. Roger and I worked in Wahpeton for the Gagelin brothers, Herman & Martin, I worked for Martin as a welder & machinist. Roger worked for Herman as a tractor mechanic. Take care Roger in the great beyond, your old friend JIM
