Roger was one of the reasons we started a television service business as in the 60's he was selling the Setchel Carlson line of television. Yes we purchased a few farm implements from him when he was in the Implement business in Emery. Many memories of him. Yes he is gone but knowing we will meet again when God calls us just keeps us going . What a day of rejoicing that will be. We extend our sympathy to you all. God Bless
