My truly amazing grandfather passed away less than a month ago. I couldn't even post something, I am so truly sad. He has been there for me my whole life, no matter how hard things were. He gave me my first drafting table that I still use. He was funny, smart, and kind. God Speed -I love you Grandpa Roger

We loved Roger dearly! Nothing will be the same without his humor, ever ending knowledge about almost every subject and his support.
