  1. Pam,

    I’m so sorry to hear of Roger’s passing. He was a great friend and mentor to me. I still build a few fishing rods every year, just the way he taught me. I will forever remember him.

  6. My first meeting with Roger was at Wagner’s Bowling Lanes where we were in the same league. I gave Roger access and parking down our driveway to Lake Hallie for ice fishing for a number of years. We shared fish stories, some of which were true.

  7. I have Rodgers outline handprint in my high school yearbook. He was returning me the favor as I signed his yearbook the same way.
