  1. Good bye, Roger, we love you and will miss you. You are such a wonderful brother in law, father, husband. You were take away from us way to soon, but when a person is called it is time s up. We will meet you up yonder later on.

  2. Patty and Family, may you find peace and comfort and peace in your Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Also know that you have a lot of people praying for your health. Trust the Lord, He’ll get you through all of this.

  3. Roger, you turned my five kids’ dread of the school bus ride into a joy for nearly a decade. Your kindness and great disposition were unforgettable treasures. Our greatest sympathy goes out to your family and close friends. Rest in Peace, Roger!

  4. RIP, Roger. I think back on all the times (many, many times) Roger and I talked Braham Bombers basketball and how he loved driving the team to away games. My most sincere sympathies to Pat, the kids and his extended family.

  5. Our family have such wonderful, good and fun memories of Roger — he was a part of our family for many years being a cousin by marriage — Rest in peace Roger, you will be missed by us – prayers to the family – we will meet again someday in heaven —- maybe you and mother can settle that $2 bet now — one of our “funnest” memories

  6. Pat our prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. Roger was a great guy! We had fun camping with you all.

  7. Pat and Familes:
    So sorry to hear about Roger. This year has been terrible, I would give anything to change it, I lost my brother the day before Roger passed, then yesterday his brother in law died. now I heard about Roger
    I will always remember Roger clearing my driveway during the winter. I appreciated that so much and he would never take any money. One christmas, he came across the street and jokingly asked that I do not decorate so much, it give Pat ideas. He helped me out alot, when I lived across the street. He will be truly missed. Thoughts and concerns are with you all–

  8. Our thoughts and prayers to all of the Lafontaine Family. Darwin has fond memories of chatting with Roger when he drove the band bus for him so many times. He was appreciated and will be greatly missed.
    Marlene and Darwin Nelson

  9. Roger was a great guy! I spent lots of time with him on odds-and-ends duties all over the county. He will be missed!

  10. Roger used to let me “drive” on the back roads when I was 10. Then he scared me to my toes when I watched him skid out on the race track, flip a few times, then crawl out of the flaming car. For some reason his family always laughed when I talked about the car on fire. I think they enjoyed the racing more than I did. Lots more!
    Patti “Chocolate Chip cookie GM” and Rog often hosted the family summer get-to-gethers in Braham. I still have the card for their anniversary last summer. Generations of family will miss Roger’s teasing. However, I am grateful for the times we were all together. RIP, cousin.

  11. We are so sorry to hear the news of Roger’s passing. John enjoyed his many years on Isanti Safety & Rescue with Roger ~ he had a gift for keeping things light and positive in difficult situations. May a bit of that “gift” rub off on us all. Our sympathies to the entire family.

  12. My sympathy to you Patty & family. Dale enjoyed going to your house with the ambulance radio thru the back yard & exchanging jokes. Good memories, rest in peace. God’s love to your family.
