Date of birth: June 4 1954
Date of death: November 23 2019
Dear Friends and Family,
While I am away, you might find me at any local sporting event, I love them all. You might catch a glimpse of me playing with my grandsons at the park or teaching my sons to never give up. I might even be seen enjoying a fine meal with my wife. I loved working with the community to assure people are able to provide for their families, so you might see me checking in to see how everyone is doing. I was a lifetime Portland resident and a well-regarded Journalist.
I was born June 4th 1954 and passed away November 23rd 2019. I leave behind my wife of 35 years, Lisa; sons, John and Derek; and daughter-in- law, Mindy. I also leave behind my beloved grandchildren, Cole and Nathan. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to ROSE Community Development. – A memorial service will be held early 2020.
Just in case anyone can hear me, GO HAWKS! GO TIMBERS!

Candle lit by Shirley Sanders Roger, you were my go-to for everything baseball! Thank you for teaming with me a number of times for the Oregon Historical Society's "What's it worth?" I will drink a toast to you my friend.
Candle lit by Paul Duchene Roger was my friend and colleague for 35 years. He worked for me, I worked for him, and as he pointed out: "What's the difference? We do it right we all look good: we screw up and we all get blamed." He was a superb sports reporter and all-round editor. Roger was fast and accurate, with an incredible memory for detail. Nothing ever went "Oh My God!" wrong on his watch, and he always made his deadlines. I will miss his gentle (and wickedly smart) sense of humor.
