I first got to know Roger in the early 2000's as one of his vendors at the music store. Roger was the type of person who always had a smile in his voice and always had a second to talk. Over the years we would talk about life, love, and many things that made us laugh. He will be missed all the way over in Missouri (where my office is located). My condolences to the family. May you find peace during this difficult time.

Our deepest condolences to Roger's widow, Mary, and all of Roger's family. Roger was a
friend of ours through Cornerstone Presbyterian Church and also through Jugs Station Square
Dancers. We especially remember his kindness and helpfulness to us, daughter Christina
Burbano-Jeffrey, her husband Jim Jeffrey, and granddaughter Skylee Jeffrey, on a summer visit to Ohio in 2012, from California. Skylee was due to audition immediately upon their return home. She had her mouthpiece for her saxophone with her, but not the other parts of the instrument. We called Roger and he came over to our house right away with an instrument she could borrow for practice while she was in town. We were so grateful for his consideration and concern for our granddaughter. Roger always had a smile on his face, whether he was doing us a favor from his music store, or whether he was a glasses customer during the time Dennis had his optical store. Roger's gentleness showed that the fruits of the Spirit lived in his heart and
life. He will be missed. We share in your tears and remembrance of Roger, and offer our sincere condolences on his passing. In friendship, Bonnie and Dennis Pearl, and family
