3 times I got to see him live here in Calgary. One time a couple had taken the closest seats we could afford, we tried to fix the error, but they wouldn't budge. The young gentleman said 4 people were not able to attend front row and center 2 of those seats became ours. "A little goodbye, a little I'll do what I must do." Today I cried.

I just read of Roger's death. Roger took some criticism and even derision for his style that some called, "Muzak," or other derisive terms. But his music first touched me in the mid-1980s when I was a child, and it never stopped being beautiful, touching and, yes, sophisticated. When I encounter or feel something hard or special, his music still goes through my head. For me, he will always be one of the greats.

We were all blessed to have listened to Roger and his wonderful songs. I have been a fan for years and went to see Roger play in Dublin. Wonderful concert, wonderful singer, forever missed. Rest in peace

I am so saddened to learn that Roger Whittaker has passed away. My husband introduced the singer's music to me when were dating and our daughter, 24 now, but only 7 then, would sing "If I were a Rich Man Man" as her favorite song. I recall when she went to the dentist once and they asked if she would like to listen to music through headphones. She said she doubted if they had her kind of music. When asked what kind, she started singing! Precious memories for me! I will miss listening to what might have been new for him but will continue to listen what he has published. Blessings for all of the family.

Today was the saddest day. I Was very disappointed to find out that my favorite artist of all time died in September 2023. I am so surprised that I did not see anything on Facebook about it. Society is so stuck on this new wave of minority groups controlling the governments and the people that we have lost touch with what really matters in life. It was over 40 years that I discovered this man's music and I have to say I have every song he ever wrote. He was a man who did not bow to generational stupidity or to the changing of times where people twist what is great into something that is Anti-God and disgusting because of a feeling. Roger Whittaker's music never changed, never wavered from what he set out to accomplish and that was to bring joy into people's lives. I remember when he came to Calgary, I was broke but paid the ticket price to get great seats with the hope that he would come down from the stage, and he did and I was able to shake his hand. His music has been here for decades and will always be remembered by those of us who knew him by his music and his life. I truly believe that he has a place in heaven, it is sad that i do not believe that I have that blessing. I could go on for a long time about how his music touched me, but I will leave it at this. Rest well Mr Whittaker, you deserve it and you will be greatly missed, but never forgotten.

I am 53 years old and I truly love Roger Whittaker's music and genuine personality. My mother introduced me to his music at a young age and he has always been part of my musical library. I wish to send my love and sympathy to all of his friends and family as he sure made an impression in my life as a musician.

Somehow, I missed the news of Roger's passing.... My tears fall... My life was changed because of his music. Thank you to TEMBO and the Whittaker family for sharing him with us for so many decades. I had the privilege of visiting with him for a few moments on two occasions. He was gracious and kind, and his gentle Spirit inspired me. The world is better because of Roger Whittaker.

Worked at CBC Vancouver in 1975 and RW was in our Wolfman Jack Show. Not pleasant to crew but a magic voice on camera live

Thanks RW for making my musical life so much richer with your songs. Saw you at a concert in the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen years ago. I still listen to your songs, and apart from your own wonderful songs, I often play your live version of Joni Mitchell's Both Sides Now on YouTube, finding it one of the best there is of this great song. Your music lives!

It is often said that a person's life is shaped by the events and experiences of their early years. Such was my case, introduced to Roger's music as a pre-teenager. I would thirst for his latest release, sing along to it on the radio or home stereo system, or often just sing it to myself. The lyrics spoke to me, and that rich voice would resonate in my whole being. I am who I am today thanks to Roger, and for that I will be eternally grateful. Rest in Peace Roger.

My beautiful mum died 3 years ago and the Last Farewell was sang at her funeral by a wonderful Irish singer. It was her favourite song and it would bring her so much peace. Thank you Roger for giving such beautiful songs that would take my mum out of the very mundane and hard life that she lived. Rest in peace! 💕✝️

Just decided to read up on Roger, whilst listening to Angel Radio. It got me thinking of him and his music and wondering where in the world he was. It was a bit of a shock to read of his recent passing. Loved his music, and of course his fantastic whistling. I used to listen to him as a youngster as my mother always had the radio on. He seemed like a decent and genuine chap. God bless you Roger, may you rest in peace. Condolences to the family.

My grandmother and mother were great fans of Roger and as it happened his concert was the first I attended. Fond childhood memories. Rest in peace, sir and thank you for the music!

I had Roger’s album I Will Always Love You, on when I suddenly came across news of his death , one year and 2 days later. Shocked, saddened, and feeling your loss with you. But love does last forever and he will always love you. You already know how much of an impact he had on this world in a positive way with that most amazing voice of all time. What a privilege it was to hear and see him in London,years ago. God bless you,family. Have peace and comfort in knowing he lives on in your hearts.
