Dorma, Lowell, and Kelly, I am so sorry to learn of the passing of Roger. I have so many wonderful memories of him as a young boy and as a young man when I lived in the neighborhood. He accomplished a lot during his lifetime. I know he struggled in his later years, and the three of you took such good care of him. I am praying for your strength at this difficult time.

I worked with Roger at Kmart in Christiansburg for many years and I will always remember how wonderful of a person he was. He always treated me like his own child and tried to always to steer me in the right direction. My dad who also spent much time talking to him while I worked remembers how genuine of a person he was. It was a family environment there and for the time I spent with roger I will always be grateful. RIP my friend. I’m very sorry for your families loss. You will truly be missed.

Roger it was great working with you at Kmart. You were always a nice manager and treated people nice. My dad(Roger Farmer) always talked nice about you. Maybe you and him will meet up and catch up on things. You will never be forgotten!
