So sorry for your loss of son, brother, father, and grandfather...in 1979, Rodger was one of the first responders to my mom's and sister's terrible car accident on Kanan Road...he helped to save their lives, in a very grave situation...we could never thank him enough for that! Enjoy the beaches of heaven! Fondly, Dru Ann Dixon-Jacobson

Roger was one of the first friends that I made when I moved to Malibu back in 1984. He was funny, loyal and so much fun to hang out with. I'm so sorry and send my condolences to his family. This earth was a better place with Roger in it.
