I met Roger in 1986. Roger helped me in so many ways to get off the streets. Roger arranged in the beginning that I stay with his bother Mel and wife. We always went to meetings. We got involved in a kids magazine together for a few years. Roger also took to me Attic State Prison. This was a great learning experience. I use to babysit his son Ronald. So many memoirs and all great ones.
As years passed, I left Kitchener we always kept in contact. I would come to the Legion in Kitchener and meet Roger and Gayle. They made such a great couple. One could say they were soul mates. Match made in heaven.
He was always a phone call away or a text. As I moved away from Kitchener we still kept in contact. When I heard the news of his passing October 4th, 2019 I was in dis-belief of his passing. It still is very hard. But when my mother past away Roger favorite saying. One Day A Time
Rest in peace my friend we will soon meet again.
We are sorry to hear of the lost of our friend and fellow AA. member, we knew Roger for many many years. My the Lord comfort his loved ones at this time. We will see you again some day our brother in the Lord, well done good and faithful servant! Rest in the Lord. John 3:16
