Roger M Link


22 Mar 2001

Roger was the coolest, smartest, funniest person I ever knew. He was an independant thinker and no one who ever knew him ever forgot him. As a friend growing up he was at one time both a hell-raising party guy and a seriously deep thinker.

He meant very much to his family, especially his brother Peter. I have learned he married a girl he knew for many years. They were not married long, however, before he was drafted and sent to Vietnam. I am very interested in anyone with knowledge of Roger's brother, wife and possibly a daughter they had.

I learned of Roger's death two days before I left for Vietnam, he had been killed the day I got my wings and orders. I think of Roger often and remember what a great person he was. His passing was such a loss to his friends and family who loved him, and also such a loss to the rest of the world who never had a chance to meet him.

Roger, rest in peace.
