Sharon, Lori and Ryan. I’m so sad to learn about the passing of Roger. He was a great friend, neighbor and employee. He never made anyone upset and he mentored several co-workers. I know that the Indians have lost one of their most beloved fans. Roger Smith

Sharon, Lori, Ryan, and family,
Roger was one in a million (he’d like those odds) and lives on in our hearts, minds, and actions. I know I’ll still have a good laugh with him from time to time.
With love and deepest sympathy,
Chris and Linda

To Roger's Family!!! After Miller Cab company quit taking passengers around town,Roger gave me his phone number and told me if I ever needed to go somewhere,just to give him a call. Well, I did that on many occasions over the last few years and Roger always called me the "King". I am so sorry to hear of his passing. He will greatly be missed. R.I.P. Roger!!!!! Nancy Rex

Dear Sharon, we send you our deepest sympathy and love, and to the rest of the family, too.
What a treasure Roger was! A dear friend to both of us, and to so many others as well. For
all of us, his passing leaves a giant empty space in our lives. He was so kind, always so proud of
his grandchildren, concerned about the state of the country and a good person all around. We
join all his friends in missing him. - Love to you, Sharon, and to your family, -
Your friends, Beth Leslie and Peggy Mawhinney
