My deepest sympathies to the Williams family. I am so sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in Isaiah 61:1,2 where God binds up the brokehearted.

Dear Cousin Deane and family. Our hearts go out to you for the loss of your beloved husband, father and grandfather. Roger's devotion to family and his community are legendary. We shall always think of Roger as a handsome, smiling and gracious gentleman who touched the lives of all who knew him.

Roger made a genuine, positive difference in the world, exemplifying the Rotary ideal. The CART Fund is his enduring legacy to the entire human race. My most sincere condolences to the family of this great man, my fellow Rotarian.

Deane and family, I am so sorry to hear of Roger's death. I will never forget how gracious and kind you were to Pete and me when we lived in Sumter, oh so very long ago. May you find peace in the good memories and speak of him often. Joanie

I know of no one who better exemplified "Service Above Self" in all he did. Those of us who have worked with Roger in the formative years of CART know how he loved the opportunity to end the disease that took his mother-in-law.
I will miss the passion for his beloved Tar Heels, and his devotion to any cause that he was involved with.
Rest in peace, my friend. We will carry the CART torch forward.

When I was creating the Roger Ackerman Golden Bucket Award for my Rotary District clubs to compete for the Most Giving and Per Capita honors...I called Roger.
After I explained the rules to the contest to him, his next comment was I like the idea, but maybe we should name it after someone more deserving . That was Roger; I had no idea that creating a contest that embodied the most giving and per person honors was the epitome of the life of Roger Ackerman. I find it only fitting that we would loose our Father of CART in the year when the Rotarian creed is Be the Inspiration. Roger has inspired thousands to carry on in his name.He will be missed.

Deane and Family, my deepest condolences. I know no better man, no better person than Roger. He was and is an inspiration and a role model for me. May hold you close during this time.
