    my name is Neill Ackerman. I shared an office with Roger at the Uof s with Roger for many years and was shocked to here of his passing. I have tried to contact him over the past two years and was not successful. I enjoyed hearing about his trips to the US open as I am a tennis player and I even had the opportunity to once hit around with Roger and we took a tennis lesson togehter. He and i were Penn State fans so we always had lots to talk about especially his trip to Ca to see Penn State in the Rose Bowl,
    He never mentioned all the degrees he earned. I am sorry he never told me he studied at Seton Hall as I grew up only a few blocks away form the campus.
    He always told me how much he enjoyed going to York to spend the holidays with you. He loved the family and the great food.
    He left his sophisticated radio in the office. It is still on the desk with his name on it. I wonder if you would like it as a memory of his. If not I will keep it there as rememberance of Roger.
    He will always remembered by me as you wrote, ” a kind and gentle man “
