Died peacefully on Friday, December 30, 2016 after suffering a stroke. Roger was a native New Yorker who attended Oberlin College and Columbia Law School. He moved to Maryland with his family in 1965 to work for the Federal Trade Commission. He spent most of his career as an antitrust lawyer at ITT Corp, where he rose to the position of Assistant General Counsel and Director of Antitrust Compliance. A passionate liberal Democrat, avid photographer, opera lover, writer of witty skits and songs, Roger had an enormous heart, a memorable smile and a contagious laugh. He was a loving father to his children, Stephen, Julie and Kenny; and a devoted grandfather to Natasha, Austin, Ethan and Sylvie. In lieu of flowers, please make donations, in his honor, to the American Civil Liberties Union. A Celebration of Life will be held at 3 p.m., on Saturday, January 28, 2017 at the Village of Friendship Heights Center, 4433 South Park Avenue, Chevy Chase, MD.
