I am sorry to hear of Mr. Williams passing. My mother , who is a gifted pianist, introduced me to Roger Williams when I was young. I loved to listen to his album, (not sure of the name) Janney is her name...his darling wife on the front cover. My mom brought me from Idaho to see Mr. Williams perform at the Valley Music Hall in Bountiful Utah. He made a great impression on me with his love of music and the gifted way he performed.

The world has lost a wonderful artist. Have enjoyed Mr William's music all my life. I'm sure heaven is happy to have him playing for the angels. The music must be wonderful there!

I saw Mr. Williams perform in concert in my hometown of Denison, Texas when I was very young. I was awed by his talent! He inspired me to play the piano. I will always remember his smile!

My mother Dorothy Fortson went to school, graduated and was confirmed with Roger. Mom to this day talks about what a wonderful man he always was and how much everyone loved him. She also remembers well his beautiful songs especially her favorite, Autumn Leaves. Her prayers and thoughts to his family and friends

Mr. Williams played a concert at North Texas State college when I was a freshman. I fell in love with his music and Mr. Williams.

Born the son of a Lutheran pastor (Frederick Weertz), and a music teacher mother, one of the first places he played publicly was in church. Throughout his life, he never ceased praising God with the wonderful creative gifts he had been given. And now we still have them to enjoy. To God Be the Glory for this extraordinary person and life.

I am now in my mid 60's. I remember in high school how much Roger Williams was often seen on TV. I loved his music as I still do now in 2011. He will be greatly missed because of that great gift he had in music. Thank you for all your great music you gave to the world.

My mom passed away on September 19th. She was a long time member of Roger's fan club and every fall she would send him leaves that she found in bright colors in honor of her favorite song. I was ready to send some to Roger in her memory when I heard of his death. The world has lost a great pianist and one of his best fans. God bless them both.

My heart is heavy as I just sat down at my computer and read your Dad's Obit. He was always my piano player hero. At the age of 12 my piano teacher took a few of her better students to see your father play at the Mosque in Richmond, VA. We just loved him, as we were not bored! He kept us entertained and smiling the entire time. Just after the concert I fell ill to German Measles, but your Dad's concert lives on in my memories, and no one can ever take them away. You were so fortunate to have such a talented Dad. May he rest in peace and playing the piano with the best of the best in heaven.
