Not sure what to say?

Roger was a dear friend to us at the Hartford Vet Center. We miss him dearly.
Rest in eternal peace my brother.

Jane and family, so sorry for your loss. We will keep you in our prayers.

Our sincere sympathies for your loss.

Our love and thoughts during these days and months ahead go to his whole family. He was such a dear devoted father. I saw this through his daughter Brigids eyes. I loved him before I met him. He was a beloved father and husband and grandfather. I was blessed to have known him. My own son has very fond memories of him. He was a brilliant and loving man. RIP.

Many fond memories of Roger as a friend and co-worker. Very special man with a great sense of humor and love of family, friends and of course sports. My sympathies to the Davis family and his many friends. He will be missed and remembered always.

I was a friend and coworker at Comcast. We enjoyed some breakfasts at Kiezls Restaurant. He was a very kind and sweet man. RIP Roger.
