Dear Show family,
I had known Roger and Pat since they came to Quincy in 1971, many times as the manager of the old Plaza and later the Pier, they were great to know, all I can say of them both, they were super, and a class act, so nice to know and always many times coming back to Quincy had seen Roger many times, he like me, never forget anyone.
My God Rest this soul and also with Pat now.

Paul K. Gees
