Roger W. Gardner
We are mourning the loss of our friend, and owner of Radarsite, Roger Gardner. He battled leukemia for a little over a year. We learned yesterday through an email from his son Geoff, saying that Roger lost his battle on Thursday evening, December 17th.
Merrimack Valley Hospice, 360 North Avenue in Haverhill, Massachusetts took "amazing" care of Roger, according to Geoff, and as his friends out here in his conservative blog network know, his family, who he loved so very much, were always there for him.

I got to meet Roger on two occasions and was very impressed with his knowledge of early Roman history...he was very well read and had an array of books in his small but comfortable apartment.
Some of you may remember the video I took during one of my visits...he was also
an excellent musician (self-taught, I believe) ...
My prayers are for his family and friends...I'm speechless at the moment but I know Roger is with Our Creator...Norm
