He prepared for Princeton at John Marshall High School in Rochester, N.Y., where he was a member of the tennis and skiing teams as well as president of the National Honor Society. At Princeton Roger majored in politics and was an active member of Campus Club. He was a member of the Glee Club, marching band, Chapel Choir, and the Orange Key Intercollegiate Committee. His senior year roommates were James Westmoreland, Richard Robb, and James Koehler.
In his senior year Roger met his wife-to-be, Sandy, at a dance at Sarah Lawrence College when she was a freshman. They married in 1958, a union that lasted 62 years until his death.
Tennis and racquetball were daily passions. He made friends wherever he went. Roger loved his family, especially Sandy and his daughters, Marcella and Juliet. He also had great affection for his friends and pets, as well as his home in Dunedin, Fla.
Roger is survived by Sandy; daughters Marcella and Juliet; granddaughter Hailey; brother Jack; sister-in-law Trudi; and many nieces, nephews, and friends. He will be sorely missed by all.
