    I just returned from Roger’s funeral and, not seeing an announcement here, want to make the members aware of the passing of a truly great man and an icon in the collecting community. The funeral was well attended by his friends and family as well as about a dozen of us who knew him through his books and the many shows he attended.

    Roger was born in North Dakota in 1940 and passed away suddenly at his home in California earlier this month.

    Roger was a true gentlemen. In this age where so many people are intolerant and quick to criticize, he was always respectful, even if he disagreed with you. A great 49ers fan, I am sure a great way to honor his memory would be to turn on the Super Bowl and root loud and heartily for is beloved Niners.
