For those who did not yet read the news:
My dear father passed away yesterday morning, after struggling with dementia for many years, putting up the good fight. He’s now at peace and we’re glad for him.
But Oh I will miss him so.
He was surrounded by us, his family on his last night; words of love, sweet music and food were shared as we kept him company through his last hours. It was a particularly special evening that I’m sure brought him great comfort.
My Dad / Roger was such a gentleman, always manners first and so well respected and loved in his community. Not a dry eye at Bridle Trails Red Apple, his favorite coffee place, when they heard the news.
Quick with the humor and positive outlook (no matter his suffering) he kept us all laughing all his years, and those who eventually cared for him fell for his charms and humor and found a special place in their heart for my dad.
A man of many talents—self-taught woods craftsman, avid sailor, golfer and pilot—He also found great joy in his family and grandkids and he will be so very missed. ~ He was my anchor, my safe place in the stormy weathers of life. And I know he’s still with me. Love you, Dad~ ❤️ .
