Condolences for Roger Manning

From Joe Sanders:
We met Roger when he came to the Friends of the DeMary Library book sales at the Masonic hall. He became involved and was quite excited over the wealth of literature we had to offer to the community. Roger was one of the nicest men I have known. Very intelligent and respectful. We had wonderful conversations. Roger was also for awhile and vice president of the group and carried that role out faithfully to the best he could. I am the better man for knowing him.
From Debrah Roundy:
I sure enjoyed working with Roger. My condolences to the family. He was a nice and thoughtful guy.
From Sharon Moore Smith:
Growing up together was funny, competitive and important. So lucky to be neighbors and friends. Roger was such a good part of growing up.
From Denise Hess:
He was a wonderful teacher. He will be missed
From Kara McCurdy:
Mr. Manning put me on the path to become a future English major. He instilled in me a love for the English and German languages and he had a great sense of humor. Where I am today is because of him. I will miss him greatly.
