Not sure what to say?

I have just learned of Roman's passing and am sad not to have had the chance to honour him at the time. Roman was a friend, colleague, intellectual provocateur, and fine dinner companion.
An era is over.

The best teacher a student could ask for,a wealth of knowledge.Rest In Power!

Bye Mr.J. I met him when I was an exchange student in 2000. A great teacher! I have gorgeous memories of him! R.I.P.

Dear Ms. Pasquale, (my favourite volleyball coach) Lol

I liked Mr. J all the time. He was a military encyclopedia, a great world history teacher, a huge rugby enthusiast and he had a brilliant sense of humour. I know you're going to miss him heaps because he loved you very much. :-)

Cheers,
Jeff Mundie

My favourite teacher-what a positive influence. Entertaining and challenging. He gave his time generously to the debate team (we won that year!). My condolences to the family.

From far away, in a hot and dusty corner of Africa. Safari njema Mzee Kubua, rafiki wangu wa miaka Sita sahau safari zetu pamoja kutoka Salisbury Plains hadi Normandy hadi Massai Mara na mabishano yetu mengi juu ya mambo ya kijeshi Nimejifunza mengi kutoka kwako na nina tumaini kutosahau yote Nitakumbuka hekima na maarifa yako siku sote za maisha yangu. Kwa heshima yangu yote. The Rude Mechanic

Sandy, We were so sad to hear the news of Roman's passing. He was a cherished friend of the Routley family and as so many entries in this book can attest, he was loved and admired by his students and by everyone associated with him in his military life.
I particularly enjoyed the opportunities to converse with him at Hussars events and to hear what he would have to say about virtually any (and every) subject. During the years that I was away my parents would frequently send me the...

I met Roman in the early 1960's when we were students at Cardinal Newman High School in Montreal. Even then he was a most remarkable and very talented individual. It took me a few days from first reading his obituary to writing this because I had to reminisce and mourn in my own way. I remember going to his home and seeing some WWII battles recreated with model soldiers on an accurate scale of 1to so many. I recall with amusement his cartoon creation, Wonder Wart Hog. I have memories of many...
