    I am sorry to hear of Roger’s passing. He was quite the man and character. I worked with him every year for 20+years. How he hated paying taxes. I am happy that I was able to share some of his life.

  2. Michele Keefe says:

    It was an honor to have known Roger. He was a wonderful man full of quick wit, jokes and contagious laughs. I always looked forward to our visits together. His passing has deeply saddened me, but I have to admit that when I think of Roger, I smile and fond memories warm my heart. My thoughts and prayers are for you Russell and Michele as well as your family.

  3. Leon Narbut says:

    My condolences to the Poulin Family. I got to know Roger over the recent years. He always was up beat and had a joke or too. We had many interesting discussions over a cup of coffee. He remained sharp as a tack up until the last few days. I admire and respect his accomplishments. What a wonderful man. He will always retain a special place in my heart.

  5. Ann and John Hyde says:

    i will always remember Uncle Roger as a happy man. This picture reflects the man I fondly loved as my uncle who never judged anyone and who was always ready with a funny story or a joke. He and my aunt Cecile were a very welcoming and happy couple. Hopefully, they have met again and their children Marlene and Kenny are very happy to see them together again. Thank you for your gift of laughter and love. You were easy to love and easily and freely loved so many others. God surely has a special place for you. Much love and sympathy to my remaining cousins and the rest of Uncle Roger’s family.

    With sympathy and hugs and much love, Ann
