Reader tributes

I had the privilege of knowing and working with Roger for over 13 years. His smiling face and cheery disposition will be missed by all in our workplace as well by family and friends. Roger had a passion for trains as well as life. He was one of those very fortunate people who lived life to the fullest. I will miss our conversations about his life growing up in England, his journey to Australia as a young man, and his other world travels. I was never a soccer fan but enjoyed talking to Roger about English soccer and his hopes that this was the year his beloved Chelsea would go all the way. We are all better people for knowing him. Cheers Roger!
