My dad was such a fan, that I also feel in love with that voice. Thank you Roger, not only for the music, but in my case a connection to my daddy that passed just as i became an adult... You will be cherished in my heart.

I knew an entire album of yours And fell in love with it again every year This Christmas, I will play it once more And I'll feel the joy and hold it near My sister and I were thrilled to discover Your Tiny Angel singing back to you I will rejoice with Darcy, as always Dragons live forever, it's true All that we need is our loved ones near Every day is like Christmas when there's love And the music will fill my heart again I'm sure you'll smile down from above I'm mourning the loss of a piece of my childhood In the way only such a loss can wound I want to thank you for the music And your enjoyment every time you crooned And thank you for the lesson in forgiveness And the example of not giving in to hate What does it mean to be an artist? What is living a life but to create? I want to say you were beautiful And I have loved you dearly And I'm trying to find the words to tell

I have been listening to Roger’s music since early childhood and “A Time for Peace” is played at our house every Christmas without fail. His beautiful voice and music combined with the insight and kindness of his lyrics have been a constant source of enjoyment and inspiration during my life. I am sad as I write this, but also filled with love and gratitude. Thank you, Roger, and farewell - you really were a very special kind of man.

My Father and Roger were in the Kenya African Riffles together, my Father also knew him as Hank..but remember's him playing his guitar when there where troubles in Kenya with Moumou....I remember seeing Roger in Stavanger, Norway at a concert, and he and Dad had a chat and remembered all the times they had in Kenya and what a wonderful country they grew up in and loved!

I’m so sorry to hear about his passing. His voice has been part of my life for over 50 years. I can remember my mom playing his music and then his Christmas music. Such a beautiful voice. Prayers for his family. Thank you so much for all the music you made.

Roger Whittaker is one of my favourite singers of all time. I first saw Roger Whittaker when the performed at the International Song Festival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1968. His entry in the festival was "New World in the Morning" and it won 10th place. I fell in love with his music and amazing singing voice right there and then. Later on, I had the pleasure of attending almost all of his concerts when he performed in Toronto, Canada, most of them at the Massey Hall. I was also lucky enough to meet him backstage, after the concerts, there 3 times. From whistling, to singing, to composing, to singing in French and German, I can't decide which one was his biggest talent. I just know that I love the joy, creativity and excitement he brought to his songs.

When I was a little girl, my mom would sing the lyrics “For you are beautiful, and I love you dearly, more dearly than the spoken words can tell”. Honestly, I thought it was something she created until one day, I heard the song playing on the radio. I was so surprised and excited to hear Roger’s voice! A few years later I found his live album and begged my mom to buy it for me. I fell in love with all of his songs upon hearing them. Once I spent the night at a friends house (around the age of 10) and together we wrote out all of the words to “If I Were A Rich Man”. We had so much fun memorizing his songs! I introduced my husband to his music as well and it has blessed us for the past 24 years. Roger’s music has been a huge part of my life and I will be forever grateful. Even his Christmas albums bring beautiful praises to Jesus. May his music live on through us all and may it continue to bring us closer to one another.

First time I heard Roger's music was from an audio casette that belonged to my father. I was as a young boy mesmerized by his storytelling, enchanting voice and the whisteling. I dreamt that I one day could manage to whistle like Roger. Later as an adult I had the opportunity to watch him live in Oslo Concert House where I got his autograph and met him personally with a bunch of other fans and friends. I would later see his show again outside Coopenhagen. Roger was a gentleman and he was real down to earth and charming to his fans. He will be greatly missed as he was loved as a musician all over the workd. Rest in Peace Roger and thank You for the wonderful music!

Rest in peace Roger, your music was the soundtrack to my childhood and teenage years, and will continue to be played all over the world into eternity. My heartfelt thanks for the great musical legacy you gifted to all of us.

A little known fact is that Roger was one of President George H.W. Bush’s favorite balladeers. In Barbara Bush’s “A Memoir”, page 525, she described the establishment of the “White House Chapter of the Roger Whittaker Fan Club” by the White House military nurses….with President Bush as honorary recording secretary. Roger’s melodic songs provided comfort to President Bush during his physical therapy sessions. After he left office, Roger and his wife, Natalie, accepted an invitation to join the Bushes at their home in Maine. With the nurses and the Bushes as an enraptured audience, Roger performed an assortment of his memorable ballads loved by us all. It was a memory we will always remember and treasure. May you sing with the angels! The White House Nurses on President Bush’s Staff: Debbie Beatty, Mary Jackson, Kim Siniscalchi, Ellen Shebuski, Paula Trivette, and Art Wallace

We will all miss that beautiful languid voice with lyrics that touched our hearts and gave us hope that one day we will see a New Day In The Morning...for everyone. Rest in Peace Roger.

As a long time listener I was floored by this loss. Like your voice and songs I expected you to last forever. Fair winds and following seas. Forever your fan and unknown friend.

My grandmother introduced me to Roger Whittaker when I was about twelve years old. I have been enjoying his music for more than 40 years. She gave me a couple of his vinyl albums and I listened endlessly to them. I find his voice comforting and calming. One of my favorites was "Tomorrow Never Comes" and it is true. Today is the new morning, not tomorrow.

I had secretly hoped to be able to cover "New World In The Morning," and change the lyrics to fit them to Roger's future age...."I met a man who had a dream he had since he was twenty. I met that man when he was eighty-nine. He said too many people just stand and wait until the mornin', Don't they know tomorrow never comes." Sadly for me, the meeting can never happen. Still, I hope for Roger's family that the love shown in his passing brings some comfort. Several of his songs are never far from me.

Thank you for all the wonderful memories. My late wife introduced me to you, and tried to attend your concerts as much as we could.
