Roger will be greatly missed. My first sergeant. He was great police. For those of you that haven’t served - in today’s world, you will never understand. And I don’t expect you to. I was blessed to have learned under his guidance when to pull the reins tight and when to let go. He never left anyone behind, and he never let the political charge motivate him. He was unfiltered and hilarious, stern and yet kind. I have many great memories working for him and with him. I still use his wisdom to this day. I will never forget you and thank you. J B

I worked for and with Roger for many years before he retired. I learned my trade from him. He taught me to be safe, fair, honest. And always go home to your family. I will miss him and his wit and wisdom.

Roger was a part of my life for as long as I can remember. He was our policeman in the west end, being one of the few officers that could come through without problems. This was because of his obvious care and compassion for everyone. He did his job and did it without regard to color, beliefs, or prejudice. If Roger arrested you it was because you deserved it. Still, he treated people with dignity and respect. It is my sincere hope the family and friends of Roger realize how blessed we all were to have been a part of his life. And rest assured we now have one of our own patrolling the streets of gold for the greatest Chief of all. Fly high Roger. I feel honored to have known you....

I was so sad to hear of Roger's passing. He was a Great Friend and Go-Cart Buddy when we were growing up in Seymour. Both of our Dad's being friends and spending time at each others houses. The Class of '63 has lost another Great Classmate! Sending love, prayers and sympathy to all of his family and friends. Peace and love, Claude Mitchell

I truly respected Roger as a police officer. He offered me great advice numerous times while I worked at Seymour PD. I found him to be fair and felt he handled situations calmly and treated others with respect and kindness.
