Roger was a family oriented man. His family always came first! He loved the ocean, boating and fishing with his family and friends. Some of his fondest memories were summer weekend trips to Monomoy Island aboard his boat the "Jolly Roger" for summer weekends of clam digging, waterskiing and good times with friends. He enjoyed watching his kids play their sports and was also an avid fan of the Boston Bruins, Celtic, Red Sox and the Houston Rockets.

He was preceded in death by his wife Beverly in April 2000.
