Thank you so much Roger ! We have really enjoyed your singing, whistling, and concerts for many years. No one can possibly match your whistling talent ! I wish I could share a powerpoint I created with Roger singing "Why", one of my favourite songs. May You Rest In Peace

So sorry to hear of Rogers passing, he provided so much joy to the World with his great voice and songs. I am former Program Director for WKTZ fm in Jacksonville Fl ,an easy listening station, and we played Rogers music, he was so popular. I met him briefly after a concert in Orlando ..he always came out to greet his fans! I have just been listening to some of his songs tonight and shared them with both my daughters. RIP Roger, "The good old E and R and H will get you there on time!" Alan.

Roger was and still is my favourite male vocalist. His amazing talents included singing in many languages, at least two whistling styles, and a consistently genuine "presence" while performing. I have enjoyed 3 of his live performances in Regina Saskatchewan and always came away with a song in my heart. Also, as VFR pilot with only a night rating, I was impressed by his beautiful GulfStream aircraft and endorsement on twin engine and full instrument rating, which is no easy achievement. Just heard today of his passing, and share a little of the sadness with his devoted family. God Bless and Keep You!

So sorry to hear of Roger’s passing. We were privileged to produce apart of hi last tour of North America and spent a lovely dinner engagement after the concert in Abbotsford BC. Listening to his stories and sharing many jokes We didn’t get out of there until the wee hours of the morning. He was such a gentleman and a wonderful entertainer. He will be much missed

What a sadness to learn of Roger's passing. My partner, Mike, passed away at end of July and among the music played at his funeral just a few days before Roger's death, as we walked into church, was "The first Hello, The last Goodbye", which I play endlessly in Mike's memory. We spent many an hour since Mike's retirememnt listening to Roger's beautiful songs, something for every emotion known to man (or woman!), and sung with such warmth, feeling and clarity. The songs he wrote himself were particularly poignant and full of meaning, but, equally, those he chose to sing written by others were very carefully selected to match his own style. To be able to leave such a legacy of wonderful music means he will be forever in our hearts. God bless his wife and family who must be distraught at the loss of such a lovely man. Wishing both men peace in the life beyond. Elizabeth

I have loved Roger's music for as long as I can remember. His gentle voice has filled my heart with joy and sustained me during the trials of my life. May his music live on forever. RIP

If Roger was standing in front of me, I'd say thank you for all the happiness you brought to me through the years. He sang beautifully and with such feeling. RIP.

I was so dismayed at hearing of Roger's passing. I have been listening to his music for over 40 years and went to his concert in Okla. City years ago. I have many of his albums and have nearly worn them out over the years. IF, BRAHAMS LULLABYE, CHINJULIP Are just a few of my favorites but I really enjoyed his All My Best album. I have been thinking about getting many on CD since my LP's and tapes are getting old and well used. Roger has been such a blessing in my life in good times and bad. His music fit in beautifully. May God bless those of you he has left behind. You were loved by a wonderful man.

Rest In Peace Roger, I found out about you through my neighbor who passed away at 95 earlier this year. Now you have joined him. May you both Rest In Peace

Thank you for your amazing voice and wonderful music you brought to us all. I have so many favorites. But my favorite of all was you whistling Brahms Lullaby. To the family, I am so sorry for your loss.💔

Dear Natalie & Family, I was saddened to hear about Roger's death. My husband, Lee, did his ground and flight training on the Commander airplane in Oklahoma City. They bonded over their love of airplanes and their families. In 1994, my husband died of ALS and Roger sent me a beautiful handwritten condolence letter. I still have it. I'm glad you will always be able to listen to his beautiful voice. I'm sure my husband, Lee, welcomed him to his heavenly home. You are all in my prayers.

Top man, a real musician. He inspired me from an early age and I'm a punk!

His songs lead me through the journey of life. His kind voice. His tone so rich and round. He was loved by many. He was a place to rest my embattled mind. I needed him and I still do. Rest In Peace sweet music man. There will never be another like you. Your physical curtain may have closed but sing on you will; sing on you must. Thank God for you and your legacy. Cheers and love form your broken-hearted legions of followers. Sleep well. You’ve earned it. Hugs.

Merci M. Whittaker, vous avez chanté "une rose pour Isabelle" à notre mariage le 5 août 2023. Je me souviendrai à jamais de votre immense talent, en particulier celui de siffler comme personne... Bon voyage

One of my favorite artists since my youth. His songs 'New World in the Morning' and his version of 'Morning Has Broken' were just right to start the day with. But 'The Last Farewell' for me was his best. I treasure the CDs I have of his songs, and will continue to listen to them. He sang with emotion and feeling.

My sympathies go out to the families of Roger. I’m heart is broken over the loss of a wonderful man and singer! I got to know his music when i read the words to the “sky boat song” in a library book in school. My dad found out that was a song Roger sang and took me to see him here in the USA. I was fortunate enough to see him three different places. I actually got to meet him and got a pic taken with him. Loved to hear him talk (with his accent). Such a sweet gentleman, and seemed like he didn't know a stranger! He will be truly missed! Thank you Roger for the gift you gave the world! Sincerely, Gini
