  13. I was greatly saddened to learn of Roger’s passing. I always remember you and Roger as a fun and helpful team that guided me through the IT world at IOGC, not to mention Friday lunches at the Whitehart when Roger and I would attack a pile of their legendary wings. Then there was the “Stress Management Day” when Roger and I put on the boxing gloves as sparring partners. I will celebrate his life rather than mourn his passing. My sincerest condolences for your loss.

  15. Just to let you know, I will be doing the “2015 Ride to Conquer Cancer” again and will dedicate a leg of that ride in the memory of Roger Daum. I will add another ribbon to my ride jersey in his honor… Far too many continue to lose the battle with Cancer, and someday we will be able to help more folks like Roger beat Cancer.
    Rest in Peace Roger…
    Condolences and deepest sympathies to Leslie and the entire Family and Friends of Roger Daum…
