Vickie, I'm so sorry about Roger! I remember being so nervous when I started working at the shop but I learned alot from him and enjoyed working with him. He always had a smile on his face and was liked by so many people. He will be deeply missed!! Thinking of you and the rest of the family.

Roger was just one of those people you automatically liked. He always was smiling, was friendly, spoke no matter where he was, and was a genuinely good man. He will missed by many.

To the Wonderful Summers family I am so saddened to hear of Rogers passing. After being in Florida for 22 years this also brings new to me that Warren passed in 2012. Shane, Derek and Erica were/are very special to me. God Bless you all. T6

My sympathy and condolence to Roger's family, tho I have not had the pleasure of meeting,
I want you to know what a nice guy he portrayed in Customer Service at Neal Tire. At a time when customer relations are nearly a thing of the past Roger was certainly the exception. Friendly, accomodating , and always pleasant in doing so.
God Bless you all.
