I knew Roger since I was in the 4th grade, as that is when we moved to Sanish. We worked together at the Farmers Union Oil in New Town. He called me Herb and I called him Swede.We had many good times together. My sympathies to the remaining families.51213

Roger was a great man who always greeted me wherever we met. He also was my school bus driver. Roger and Marion were good friends of my mother when they all were in the New Town assisted living center. He will be missed!

It is with so much sadness to hear of Roger's passing. We wanted to visit him last summer when we were back there visiting, but chose not to upset him. I will miss the visits with him, whether they were in North Dakota or Oregon. I will always cherish my many memories of visiting him and of him letting me drive the thrasher around his yard. My thoughts are with his family at the time of sorrow. He now is in the company of so many family members, as they guide each other through the heavenly grounds.
