I have been a fan of RW’s music for as long as I can remember. It was on BBC radio I first became aware of him, and his music really caught my attention. I only ever bought 2 x LPs, ‘New World in the Morning’ & ‘The very best of Roger Whittaker.’ I caught up with many of his music on the radio. With great sadness I read of his death. Even so, his music will stay with me. Thank you, Roger.

My thoughts and condolences go out to the members of the Whittaker family. Roger was a very talented artist and beautiful singer. His memory will live on in his music and the hearts and minds of those he left behind. I became a Roger Whittaker fan in the early 1990s after purchasing a cassette copy of his Tidings of Comfort and Joy Christmas album. I would play it over and over again and was always amazed of how rich and beautiful his voice was. I am listening to it as I type this entry. The Last Farewell only seems appropriate to mention at this time. Roger, watch over us in Heaven and please know that you will always be remembered.

Strange story! When I was young I spent summers with my grandparents in Philadelphia. They were wonderful summers, and the radio was always on at a perfect volume in the kitchen at lunch. I remember hearing this man sing and his voice was wonderful. Each time I heard the song I tried to memorize a line or two - then repeat them. Unfortunately, I never asked my grandmother if she knew the song title or artist. This song has been on my mind ever since those young days of my teens. Tonight I finally was successful in finding it was Durham Town. It was so hard for me to locate and I am thrilled to say thank you to Roger for a song that has stayed with me for decades, yet was a mystery. I have enjoyed other songs he wrote/recorded but had never heard my father play this one. My father was an excellent whistler as well. I and sorry for Roger’s passing, but I think he enjoyed his time with his family and work. Again - many thanks to Roger and his family.

Roger Whittaker was the background music of my teenage years and in particular I remember watching him on many occasions on The late late Show with Gay Byrne on Irish Tv in the late 70s with my now-deceased parents. Seeing him perform in Waterford many years later brought me back to that farmhouse in Wexford and brought tears to my eyes. Rest well Roger. Your fantastic voice lives on.

I'm 35 and don't remember a Christmas without Roger's music. Every past Christmas is marked with his music, and future Christmas will be as well. Thanks for the lovely memories, Roger.

Dear Natalie Roger was introduced to me by my father in 1984. My dad and I used to listen to his rich and pleasant voice through my childhood years in India. My dad died in 1998. We remember my dad as a huge fan of Roger. Whenever I think of my dad I play the “Magical world” and it takes me back to a better world of music which Roger had gifted us. Words are poor comforters but Roger was one in a billion. He made us feel happy and safe. Thank you and Roger. I believe in heaven and I am sure The Lord is listening to Roger and thanking him as are we all. Best wishes from Sudipta

To me, Christmas just wouldn't be the same without the wonderful seasonal music of Roger Whitaker. I grew up listening to his songs on 8-Track cassettes my mother bought. I know every Christmas song by heart now and sing along at this time of year while doing mundane chores. I'm in my 50s now and yet Darcy the Dragon is still my favorite. Thank you for all of the ways you made the world a better place. RIP Mr. Whitaker

While listening to music this afternoon “The Last Farewell” came on I was compelled to google Roger. I was saddened to hear he passed. I was introduced to his music through my father and I’ve continued to listen throughout my life. My father recently brought me some of his albums and there were a couple Roger Whitaker in there, thankfully. I’ve always loved his voice and storytelling. Blessings to his family for comfort.

Bless u Roger RIP. I went to Worcester cricket ground one year, took one of my customers and we went up in the posh box. I saw Roger sitting a few seats across from us. I didn’t pluck up the courage to go and say hello I wish I would have, but he looked so settled and enjoying himself I didn’t want to disturb him. But I remember my Father loved his music and some of it rubbed off on me. If I see you next time Roger I will come and say hello. Xxxx

I've loved Roger Whittaker's music since the early 1980's. What a PHENOMENAL voice, and what PHENOMENAL songs! It was a shock to learn of his death on September 13 2023, he will be sorely missed 🙁 RIP, Mr. Whittaker.

A man with a voice of Pure Gold, many a time his songs got me through the bad times, and a lot of good times. Not many people can make your Heart Hurt even though you never knew them, or even met them, when you hear of their passing. Thank you Mr Whittaker for sharing your extraordinary vocal talent with us, and may your family know they stood next to a Legend, and legends last forever.

So sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of seeing Roger twice in Canada and it was wonderful. I was an odd fan, 20 years old and surrounded by my elders. When he sang changelip we screamed out “HeyHeyHey” and literally scared the folks in the audience. I am so sad to find out he passed but so happy with the legacy he left us.
