We received the following email from Steve Windom
Iím Rogerís brother Steve (in Colorado). I know you kept in touch with Rog from
time-to-time. I thought you should know he passed away last month at 61 in
Cocoa. He wasnít in good health for several years. They are presently looking
into the cause but we suspect complications from his health. He liked to
reminisce about the good old days in Cocoa and I guess he kept in touch with
some people from your class but Iím not sure who. So if you could pass the info
on that would be nice.
Thanks for being a friend to Rog!
