Dear Family and Friends of Roger,  I wanted to say to you all how much I loved Roger.  I have not been in touch with him for many years but I feel compelled to tell you how kind and smart and funny I thought he was. Roger was one of the nicest LaRue "boys" I knew. He always made me smile. Sent with kind regards,  Ann Ballinger

I am very sorry for your loss. I didn't really know Roger, but I know what an important part of your family he was.  I always enjoyed hearing about grandpa from Desiree.  He was so loved by his family and it was obvious he returned that love abundently.  Hold those memories close!
With deepest sympathy,
Becky Kibler

To theb Wright family,
I am so sorry to hear of Roger's passing. He will be sorely missed. He always thought of others before himself. It was a privilege to have grown up with Roger and to be able to call him a friend. He was a big influence in my decision to join the Navy. Anchors away my friend.
