Growing up in Kenya, your songs were very much part of our heritage and your music resonated with those born in Kenya. You shall live on through your legacy and music. We thank you for sharing such an amazing gift with the world. Rest in peace and whistle with the Angels.

To the Whittaker Family- May your grief be short, but your memories long....Two weeks ago, I woke out of a sound sleep with The Last Farewell in my head, a song I remember from my childhood, and one of my Grandma's favorite songs (and artists). I pulled it up on my phone and listened to it for the first time in many years, over and over. Roger touched my soul, he made an impact on me. I was filled with thoughts of my Grandma, and my wonderful music-filed childhood. She bought me one of his LP's which I wore out. The imagery of that song was burnt into my memory like a laser. Upon hearing it again, I looked him up, news of his passing had not yet reached our shores. It was as if he had sung it to me personally, a last farewell, in my dreams, as I found that he had passed a little later that day. I know I will never forget Roger's gentle, soothing voice and music. Thank you, Roger, for your gift of music that you shared with us all. Rest in peace, kind sir.

I only have good memories of Roger's songs from my childhood and they will always come back to my mind. It's a shame he's gone and he was a great whistler, I loved hearing him whistle. Now he whistles for the angels in heaven. Rest in peace now, you deserve it. All my condolences to the family, my thoughts are with them

Ever since I can remember, Rogers music was always on my parents turntable and later in their CD player. Two years ago my Dad passed away and I played a number of Rogers songs to help Dad pass to the spirit world. Thank you Roger for sharing your gift with the world ❤️

My first memory of Roger's music was in 1986, my dad had left the family home but left behibg a collection of cassettes, one of these was a Reader's Digest collection of Roger's songs. I lapped it up and played it over and again. Lots of the songs have very special places in my heart - particularly after tge early and sudden death of my own wife. My thoughts go out to the whole family and those who knew him well. Much love.

What a great man. Music has got me through my sometimes troubled life. The first two singles I bought was Durham town and two little boys. This is the sad part of life that I will never understand but thanks to you tube we can access this great mans music at anytime.
