  1. Just heard of Roger’s passing. So very sad. Roger was a very kind man .

  2. My deepest sympathy to Roger’s wife Carol and sons Roger and Kent and to the entire Whitford Family on Roger’s passing. Having grown up in Seekonk with Roger, his father “Let” (Howard) and Roger’s brothers Peter and Richard have left me with great memories of a great Seekonk family.

  3. Dear Carol and Family,
    So sorry to hear of Roger’s passing. Anytime we spoke with him he always made us have a good laugh. You and Roger were always so good to my brother John and his wife Edie. My brother and Edie are really going to miss him. We will keep him in our prayers.

  4. Carol and family, my sincere condolences on your loss. Both you and Roger were always available to help others. Especially, when I went to the hospital to have baby number two, you both came over to stay with baby number one at one o’clock in the morning. May he Rest In Peace.

  5. Sending my sincere sympathy to Roger’s family.
    So many memories of Roger while at Pitney Bowes. He was hilarious. I remember the day he filled my car up with shipping popcorn only because I took his hubcaps off and put them on the coat rack days before. And many more stories. We would meet at the Country kitchen in Seekonk every morning for breakfast after leaving the office and continue to have a great time before going out to our service calls. Rest In Peace my friend.

  6. With heart felt sympathy !! Richard , Ginny Miranda

  7. I was Rogers cousin and grew up with him at the chicken farm. I ended up working at the farm after all the boys went on with their lives in the navy.
    As time passed We lost touch except for meeting at special occasions.
    Dianne and I began traveling out west, and thanks to Roger’s advice, we enjoyed many places that we probably wouldn’t have seen.
    We are so sorry for your loss, and our thoughts and prayers are with you.
    Charlie and Dianne Duranleau

  8. Roger was ‘My Buddy’ . He was always there to help if the car needed brakes ., or if we needed a ceiling fan installed. I was his “Navigator” on road trips and he could always count me getting us lost. Many good times – I loved the guy. I’ll miss you Rog ❤️

  9. Carol.
    I was just talking about you and Roger last week with my daughter, We were remembering the times all out kids played together and that you were a low key mom. One of your sons like eating rock and you just told us “he never swallows them”. You were such a cool person. Even at work you were the least stressed nurse around. When Frank came into my life we had some great parties and Roger and Frank loved telling jokes. You and Roger were a fun couple. I know he will be missed by many friends and especially by you and his family. My prayers and thought are with you.

  10. Carol and Family, I never did get a chance to see Roger before his passing. I will forever have you both in my heart, for the times that Roger and you were
    there for me and my siblings when we were growing up. I always wanted to stop in and show you my family, that I was able to have because of your love and care for us. I am 60 now, married 35 years with my eldest (Alyssa) a nurse living in Fla. and my son (Jared) 21 and last year in college. Like Matt Siravo from Uncle Mattys, Mr.& Mrs. Earle Dias, Loretta Perry from Balmoral ct. and so many others that stepped up and stepped in when our mother died so early. I wish I could have given him a great big hug! Thank you again for sharing Roger those early years when you were raising your own family. much Love to you and your family.
    Robert (Bobby) Aguiar

  11. My Sincere Condolences to Carol & Family!! I will always remember Rogers great sense of humor & the kindness he showed to my family .
