Not sure what to say?

I am extremely saddened for Roscoe's family and friends. His determination and resolve in battling cancer while maintaining such an optimistic attitude and continuing his many adventures is beyond comprehension for many of us. Roscoe and I had a gentlemen's bet on which one of us would first die of cancer and I'm not sure who won or lost that friendly wager. Our last conversation on that effort was several days before he passed away and he knew exactly where he was going.


I met Roscoe in a Dale Carnegie class many, many years ago and then on into the insurance business and we have been friends ever since. He was full of great stories and words of wisdom and knowledge. He was a very special person and Heaven has gained a special angel. God bless him and Gwen and the family.

I looked forward to reading his posts on Facebook. He was a blessing from God.

We'll always remember Roscoe as just how he appears in his obituary picture, a wonderfully congenial man, always ready with a smile and a friendly conversation. Keep smiling, Roscoe! God Bless.

Roscoe was a unique and inspiring individual that who touched many lives and will be missed. Prayers go out to the family.

It was a pleasure to know Roscoe here on Facebook. We never met in person, yet I feel certain we will one day in heaven. I'm extending my deepest sympathy to his wife, family & close friends & offering prayer for peace & comfort now & in the days to come.

Roscoe was an unique individual who included everyone he knew. Many remember him from races. But I also remember the many times he took food to people on Christmas Eve who had little or no food. He just said go and many followed. You were a bright crayon in the his Roscoe

Merrill's Mile July 2015

I met Roscoe, as many others did, on a running event, probably a marathon. I don't actually remember the first time, but I would often look for him either at the back of the start line or along the course. Both of being slow runners we did a lot of talking. It was at an event in July of 2015 that he asked me "what would do if you were told you had 6 months to live". It was then that I learned he had cancer.
I ran or walked with Roscoe several more times. We often talked...
