We are very very sad to learn the news of Roger's passing. We got to know Roger and Sherry through my sister Roberta. Roger and Paul were business partners in the 80's "Whitney's Cafe". Roger was kind, smart, hard working, loving, and a good friend to us all. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
Paul and Sarah Tarutis and family

Dear Sherry and family- we are sorry to hear about the death of Roger. He was such a big part of our life during the Highway Host, Mug and Muffin years. We especially remember his mischievous sense of humor . Peace and love to you.

Was saddened to hear of Roger's passing. We worked together on the Building and Grounds crew at Bemidji State Park for 4 summers. Roger was a patient mentor as I learned the ropes the first year. He was always understanding with a quick smile and kind encouragement. He was a dedicated employee and trustworthy gentleman. We had many fulfilling days assuring the campgrounds, buildings and trails were properly cared for. I lost contact after those years but reconnected periodically later when I saw him at the courthouse. It was just like old times.
Rest in peace my friend. I'll remember you as one of the good guys.

Dear family,
Roger and I were childhood friends in Nymore.
We used to watch our favorite TV shows and order Dave's pizza on Saturday nites. Had some good laughs.
Please tell Laverne he was a blessing in my life.
