I had the joy of working with Rodger at 2&7 Calgary television . . . he was so good at so many things, but best of all he was a joy to be around . . . and such a professional always at the top of his game in the TV business . . . . I'll always smile when I think of Rodger . . . . The angels in heaven are in a lucky spot having Rodger in their company to keep them smiling . . . . thoughts and prayers are with Denise and family . . . . Rest in peace Rodger . . . .

I was lucky to work with Rodger for decades. The one thing all his colleagues knew was he was always kind and oh so funny. I am sorry for your loss

Rodger was a great VTR operator and a even better person. Gosh he was funny! His headset vibe was constant humour and fun. He could always crack me up. R.I.P. Rodger, you’ll be missed.

I am so sorry to hear of Rodgers passing. I had so many great times with him camping and riding in his 4X4 out in the woods. Then there were the trips to Amsterdam where we shared many a beer and saw the amazing history of Europe. At work Rodger was an amazing tape op and we were a great team working the Flames games. To me Rodger will always be red leader with all of my replays at the ready. RIP Buddy.

I had the pleasure of working with Rodger at CFAC/2&7/Global for many years. He was funny, extremely witty and charming, to boot. He was a magician on VTR, and as such, we made a great team on Flames on 2&7. My heartfelt condolences go out to you, Denise. Rodger will be missed.

I worked with Rodger for 22 years at CFAC, 2&7, Global etc. We were close friends and spent many weekends in our 4x4's camping in the Waiparous Creek area of Calgary. I will always remember fondly our many trips to Amsterdam and driving like wildmen on the Autoban. We also took many long lunches together to enjoy "Days of Our Lives" with friends at the house he and Norm shared by the station. Rodger was someone that everybody wanted to work with and be around because of his sharp wit and even shaper intellect. He will be dearly missed by me but I know he is sitting somewhere with Mo and Gwen on his lap smiling down on us.

Rodger and I worked together at Calgary 7/Global for many decades. He would always bring a big smile to anyone who worked with him. This guy was seriously funny, what a wit! He built some art installations under the 1" video tape machines at Global and stuffed in his favourite animal characters naming them 'Pooh's Burrow' and 'Mr. Bunny's Hollow'. He'd be happy to know that 'Spiny Norman' the Christmas fish, is still brought out each year at Christmas in On Air Services.

Sorry to just hear of Rodger’s passing. Condolences to his loved ones. Rodger and I worked together in videotape in Calgary. I always looked forward to working shifts with Rodger because you knew there was going to lots of laughs…he was so quick with the wit. He had a nickname for everybody…mine was “Sidecar”. Not sure why, but I secretly loved it. Rest in Peace Rodger.

Denise, so saddened to learn of Rogers passing. He was one heck of a man. You could see the love in his eyes whenever he brought you coffee. I loved calling you Mrs Morton. May he watch over you until you meet again. Hugs my friend.

I lived directly across the street in Keewatin from Roger in our teens, I bought my first motorcycle from him, a Bridgestone 90. He was so funny and fun to be with. This is so sad as we are the same age. R.I.P Roger make them laugh where ever you are. My utmost condolences.

I am very saddened by Rodger's passing. I had not seen him in many years, but I had the pleasure of spending time with him in Calgary during a couple of summers in the early 1980s. It was such a great time. He was as funny and as much fun as anyone I ever have met. Please accept my condolences.
