“We are so saddened to hear of Roger's passing. He was way too young. So remember him and his brother coming to the sale barn every Saturday. They had so much fun there. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of the family.

“This guy!! He will surely be missed. Always joking around. I first met him (sorta) while going to the sale barn every Saturday with my dad. Low and behold, when I started at DG, I see him and Donnie almost every day at DG. I would always call them trouble and they'd argue that I was the trouble maker. I'm sure Don will be lost without him. My condolences to his family through this hard time.”
