Roger was a long-time member and supporter for many years of Amateur
Astronomer's, Inc., Stellafane, as well as the United Astronomy Clubs of
NJ, and many other astronomy organizations and endeavors. He is well

A service will be held on Dec. 29 at 1 pm at Memorial Funeral Home, 155
South Avenue, Fanwood, NJ. (Phone is 908-322-4350. The cross streets

Donations may be made to First Church of Christ, Scientist, Westfield in
lieu of flowers.

If you know of anyone else who would want to know about this, please
forward this email on.

Thank you.
