Your dad always had a smile. During the years he worked with us we came to view as a good friend. We could always depend on him to get the job done. We will miss him. So sorry for your loss.

Roger always made me laugh and smile. I'm going to miss the Reeses and the Snickers he left behind every time he received his corn ticket at the window. Dye's you lost a great driver, and to all the Lander's family a good man. Sorry for your loss keeping everyone in my prayers. Scale Operator at POET in Laddonia, MO
