    So sorry for your loss. Our deepest condolences to you, Joanne and your family. Roger reminded me a few times that I was older then him. My birthday 7/25/51. We go way back to high school and then the “HILLS SUPERMARKET” days after school. Joe was remembering the time the store was held up. Not a good time but after finding out he was ok, we all teased him about “using his head”. Prayers that you find comfort and strength in this difficult time. R.I.P. Roger

    Rest Easy Grandpa, it will never be the same without you. I will miss the surprise visits and the fun we had when you would come up. I will also miss the occasional calls from you where we would talk for an hour or more about anything that came to our minds. I will also miss that Sweet, Charming and Personable attitude that you had about everything. Rest Easy up there big guy, and always remember that I love ya a whole bunch. Until we meet again.

  4. I have so many great memories of Roger and most of them were when I was a young kid A cousin to my Father, Steve Due, we would spend many a 4th of July at the More household. When 4th of July came around we knew who we’d be spending it with and always a great time. We called it “Organized Chaos” and so much fun. Roger may you Rest In Peace and look over your family and friends. See your on the other side…

  5. Prayers for the family. Roger was a great guy. We coached soccer together many times. He was all about the children. He was a great mentor and will be greatly missed, however, the skills and life lessons he taught and shared with live on forever in the lives of those he touched.

  6. Your Favorite Wife

    You would always ask, “How’s my favorite wife?” and I would say “I’m your only wife.” For 50 years we knew each other and for almost 50 years we were together as husband and wife. Through thick and thin You were my Rock and best friend and I don’t know what I’m going to do without you, but with the Love and support from our 4 children and 11 grandchildren (& 1 infant great-grandson) I/We will get through this together. As I said many times before and again right before and right after you Peacefully went to Heaven “I Love you Always and Forever and we will be together again one day.” God Bless you Roger. Always in my heart.
    Your Loving and “Favorite wife,
    Joanne

  7. Your Favorite Daughter

    Our ongoing joke even though I’m your only daughter. I love you and miss you so much but I know you’re not in pain anymore. Nothing was left unsaid because we talked everyday until you couldn’t talk on the phone anymore. When we saw you the other day I told you I wasn’t saying good bye I said I’ll see you later. My heart wasn’t ready but God was. Malachi, C’Ayana, and I will remember every moment we shared with you. They were priceless. See you later dad. R.I.P.

  8. Grandson

    Hey grandpa, I know you probably are reading this up there somehow so I wanted to say that I love you a whole bunch and I’m sorry I didn’t get to say that sooner. Rest easy grandpa so I can kick your butt when I see you again.

    The first time I worked with oo escorting an oversized load I noticed his accent and asked him where he was from. He said the south, and with that laugh of his, he said south bronx.
    Will miss him

    When I first met Roger he infuriated me because he was never on time. It became a running joke that if you want him there at a certain time better schedule it 30 minutes early. The more I got to know Roger the more I understood that time and things were not important to him. People and obligations were what mattered to Roger. If he counted you as a friend you could call on him anytime and he would be there for you. His family meant the world to him and being a coach. The children he taught walked away with life lessons and the ability to read people. He was a fun loving and wanted his family to be happy. My deepest sympathies goes out to his family.
