Roger was the City Electrician and Electrical Inspector for a number of towns in the area. I worked with Roger at the Fire Department, later tested under him for my license, and often turned to him for advice and suggestions, both as an AHJ and an experienced electrician.

He was a good man and will be missed. RIP my friend.
