It was with shock and sadness that I leared of Roger's passing.

When he came on the APRS scene at the turn of  the
century, we were finalizing the APRS spec, and he brought 
to the table a freshness and logical outlook that breathed 
new life into a long and tedious process.  

His code brought a fresh global view to APRS maping
technology and coming in while we were finishing the
documentation of the Spec, his UIview code was able 
to implement a pretty good percentage of the overall
APRS system.

He was always willing to take a look at new ideas and a
fresh look at old ideas to  contribute to the global growth of 
APRS by continuing to put more of the full APRS Spec into 
his code and to make operations easier for his users.  

It sure was great working with Roger...
Truely a dedicated man to the hobby.

We will surely miss him...
But what a legacy he leaves behind for us all!

May his path be always short
his channel always clear
and his packets collision free!

Thanks Roger

de WB4APR, Bob
