I worked with Roger a lot of the time when I was a Constable and he, a Senior Constable, from Fairfield and Cabramatta ( 34 Division ) and he was a great bloke to work with and we would often end up at his place or out watching his two sons playing their sport on a weekend.

I often thought of Roger.

May you forever Rest In Peace mate.

I remember Roger very well and worked many shifts on 34/10 or 34/11 with him. He was always good humoured and he knew everybody in Cabramatta. I looked up to him a lot as a young constable. Rest In Peace.
