So sorry to hear about Roger. We line danced many years with him in Kalamazoo. He taught us lots of couples dances. He knew all the latest and greatest country dances. He was a wonderful teacher and we spent several nights a week learning what we could from Roger. Our condolences to all the family. He will be missed. Gloria & Jan Koski

Roger was a good friend for a lot of years of line dancing, Pickle ball and Tennis! He was a good friend in return to be counted on if there was a need! He surely is missed by a lot of players down here in Florida. He had a heart of gold and would give you the shirt off his back! He was more like a brother to me! I will surely miss him also! But we will all be together at the River some day!
