Stolt Family,
Was so sad to learn of Roger''''s passing. He was a truly special man;always a pleasure to be around. He was one of my favorite people when I was the Manager at the Smethport Kwik Fill.
It is said that those we meet in life leave footprints behind and Roger definitely left his in my life.
Thank you for sharing him with all who met him and may your precious memories bring you comfort in the days ahead. With deepest sympathy, Bill Taylor

We were so sorry to hear the news. Rodger was a wonderful person!!! He always took the time to stop and talk. We enjoyed seeing him at Sena Kean doing bingo. He was loved by all the residents and you could tell he enjoyed being there. Rodger and Nancy spent a lot of time riding bikes with Bruce''''''''s parents. We know they had some nice times together. We will be thinking of Nancy and the family keeping all of you in our prayers.

Dear Nancy,

We are deeply sorry for your loss and are praying that the "everlasting arms" of our glorious Savior will support and strengthen you through these trying days. Roger was such a dear friend to us. We shall always remember how you and Roger took us into your hearts the moment that we stepped into the Lighthouse Church. It was such a privilege for us to be there with all of you even for a brief time. We take great comfort in knowing that Roger is home with the Lord that he so deeply loved and so faithfully served.

May the Lord''''s strength and support you today and every day as you so faithflully serve Him as well.

In the Bonds of Christ''''s love,

Royce and Becky
