Book of Condolences

The Family would appreciate if you could leave a message to be put into a book of condolences for the family.

Alan GoodridgeA co-worker at TSSA.

In my memories of Rodger what stands out is the warmth I always felt in his company. It seemed to come from his innate joy in living and he wrapped you in it and afterwards I felt the loss of it until the next time. I will always remember that and treasure it. Rodger was one of those rare people who really did make this a world a better place for his having been here and his passing is all the more sad for it. Rodger will not soon be forgotten.

I remember Roger well. He was a very kind and respectful man and had a great sense of humour. Somebody you could rely on. Full of Irish charm xx

My sincerest sympathies to all the family circle. Deeply saddened to hear off Rodger’s passing. Rodger was my line manager in the TSSA Irish office from 2001 until he retired. His leadership and negotiating skills as Irish Secretary were second to none and I learned many tricks from him over those years. He was a very hands on mentor, coach and friend to me during my employment in the Irish office, even after he retired. I have so many fond memories of him and whilst I am deeply saddened, his quirky sense of humour, his laughter and memories will always hold a special place. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad and difficult time. Carla.

So sorry to hear that Rodger has passed. I knew Rodger from T.S.S.A. day’s in London during the early 70’s. Rodger introduced me to Irish folk music and loved to hear him sing and play in the band. He had an unforgettable cheeky smile I will never forget Thinking of his family at this time.
