Roger was loved by the people he worked with at A12 Industries. He was full of ideas on how to change & create new businesses. He was clearly a devoted family ma. Rest in peace Roger after a life well lived.

Roger such a lovely man gone too soon, love to all your friends and family - I reminded your daughter yesterday about how handy your pen knife was when we were watching Jack and Harry play football.. as we struggled with opening a child’s toy and there you were with your pen knife and we got it open! RIP Roger xx

Roger once advised me over dinner that sarcasm should be served on the end of a rapier, I had no idea what that was... He had to explain, it's a fencing sword, further explaining how that would work; swirling circular motions followed by a soft (ish) jab to the body... Then he added but you, oh you serve sarcasm on the end of a very short dagger, with close up eye contact... We all laughed hard! What an absolute legend!! RIP x

  • This is my brother - so well described and so recognisable. We shared many an exchange from as soon as he could talk or even throw a missile. I miss him so much.
