Roger truly enjoyed working as a consultant and teacher in the Marketing and Advertising field. He loved to travel with Karen, especially to tropical beach destinations where they would enjoy the sun, sand and surf. Roger’s passion and flair for cooking was a delicious treat, and will be missed. A kind and gentle man, he had an infectious personality, a healthy dose of curiosity and always had a smile to share.
