TO ALL of Rogers family. I AM SO sorry for your loss. Roger and my young brother Zack Murray were very good friends growing up. I haven't see Roger for some time. He was at our home a lot in those days, and seemed more like a younger brother to me. A VERY NICE child, man and friend! I'm sure he WILL be missed by many!!

Roger was a caring man. When he was able he would come to the house and pick up the car or either bring it back. He would always go out of his way to help people. My prayers for the family 👪 🙏 ❤.

Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. Roger will be greatly missed by all that knew him. He was one of the nicest men I have ever known. He will always be "Stringbean" to me.

What a sweet precious man Roger was. Roger will definitely be missed for sure. Big hugs for all of the family. I know there is a big empty hole in your hearts and lives. But I feel Roger is still there, as I feel Bubba is still here, maybe not in body, but in spirit.
Prayers and Best Wishes that this process will go as easily as possible for you all.
Love You Guys,
Tami Black

So sorry to hear of Roger's passing. He was the mechanic for my families cars back years ago when his shop was in Sandy Mush. He was always so caring and would pick up the car and return it to my Mom at work. When I'd see him and family dining out, he would speak as he always did. Our prayers are with the family at this difficult time.
