I would like to echo the statement of Ms. Keane. Professor Deakins,who gave me a life long love of Shakespeare, was absolutely the best teacher I encountered during my undergraduate experience in the early 1980s. Whenever I think of Shakespeare I think of Professor Deakins and then smile.

Professor Deakins taught me Literary Criticism at NYU and was my faculty advisor. I remember specific class discussions of Hamlet, A Passage to India, The Secret Sharer and The Convergence of the Twain. He was the best teacher I've ever had and was a very kind and thoughtful person. He will be missed.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Professor Deakins taught me more about Shakespeare through his engaging lectures at NYU, where I was a student of his in the early 1990s. I remember how he performed lines, jumping on top of his desk and those colorful socks he wore. I've never forgotten him. He remains on of my best memories of NYU.

Today we celebrated a man whose humanity came through in the first minutes of your exposure to him: a man it was a privilege to know. Thank you, Roger. I will be a better man for having met you.

Roger was my first cousin. We grew up together in Decatur and were more like brothers than cousins. We remained close throughot our lives. It's hard to imagine a world without Roger.

I will miss my dear friend.

Roger was always so warm and gentle and smart. It was always a pleasure to talk and hear his calm voice. I'd offen go right to him when his crew arrived and grab a hug and hope to get a few minutes to see where the conversation meandered to. What ever we discussed, I always listened intently and was never diasapointed.

What a caring a lovely man! There may be no greater testament to a parent then what kind of children they leave the world. In this way, Roger lives on in his smart, ambitious, conscientious and loving children. All of them parents themselves. He must be so proud.

We loved Roger. I remember his playful willingness to help lead a welcome procession for Rev Donna Schaper at Judson Church - he shouldered one of the enormous puppets we made and marched with it around Washington Square Park. What a wonderful man he was.

What comes to mind immediately when I think of Roger is that he was a true gentleman in every sense of the word. He was a gentle soul who truly listened when you spoke to him. Men like him are few and far between these days. He will be missed.

Mr. Deakins, sir, I only had the pleasure of meeting you once, on the auspicious occasion of your dear daughter's Cat's wedding to Mac Quayle.
Your gentle and luminous personality was on all the time, visible to all.
See you in the afterlife dear chap. With love and respect from Ken and Neenia.
