|Birth: ||Mar. 20, 1954|
|Death: ||May 5, 2008|
I met Roger through a mutual friend whom I met online. We went on several paranormal investigations, visited each other's homes, shared meals and coffee, and shared the interest in ghosts and other paranormal activity.
Roger freely taught my daughters and me how to do investigations, how to read the equipment, what to look for, explaining everything as patiently and kindly as possible. He loved to joke around and have fun, he enjoyed so many things - he was a very intelligent person, with eclectic interests. He was as fascinated with a computer program as he was flying a plane.
He passed away due to complications from back surgery.
