Mr. Wald was a such a kind man, so well respected by his students and his colleagues. My parents, Dale and Rosemary Schneiderhan, will miss him dearly. My thoughts are with Peggy and the rest of his loving family.

It is with great sadness that we heard of Roger's passing...one of the "enduring eight"...a gentle man, a wonderful role model for the kids he taught, a first rate editor of the Aquin. We will miss you, Roger. Adrian and Katie

I am so sad to hear of this loss. I got to hear so much about Roger from Mark. He was a fine man and, according to Mark, a wonderful father. Please accept my deepest condolences.

Oh, I remember Mr Wald from Parkview...From looking at the dates, he was principal there from the time I started kindergarten right up until I left Parkview. It is hard to watch folks that we relied on, their knowlege and strength that kept all of us students secure and feeling safe leave us. Blessings to the family.
