It is not easy to become a Lt. Col. in the Air Force, I am impressed and I salute Roger as a fellow classmate and fellow vet.  Very sorry his life had to be cut so short.  God be with you.

Hello Rodger.... Kenny here!  Yes, that's what I was called all those growing up years, but more importantly you, Gary Massey, Rich Rosebrough, and gosh, seems like many others in our band of youngsters.  Although we didn't live across the street from one another, we trecked the 2 plus miles to each others homes or to the woods or the ball fields many, many times till early high school where by several of us took different paths to college...even for a short time like myself.  I remember being in Air Force ROTC at UMSL for 1 semester...until I found out I had no chance to fly because of wearing glasses.  Then I withdrew and I watched you accel in your quest to become an officer...I'm proud of you buddy...always was. 

We lost touch except through our folks, or Marilyns folks with my Mom.  I remember touching base with you for a short time through Face Book and email... but perhaps too late due to your advanced condition.  I remember your wide smile and your racing suit standing near the Indy Car you drove....don't remember details, just that as kids, "we" all talked about the need for speed and our desires to drive such a fast car.  Bravo to you Rodg!  Time escapes me, but soon after I saw that posting,  you passed on.  I salute you my friend... for your Military achievements in life... Your family life with Marilyn... and that unbelieveable experience in driving a racing car... a dream come true.  May GOD'S Face shine upon you Rodger ...always and cover your family still on earth.   Ken Lorton
