Roger Alcorn a humble man who loved his God, family and friends. Roger always greeted you with a smile and a kind word. He loved to hunt, travel and serve the Church. I will always be grateful for his love for my dad. He was always there for my dad. He prayed for him, invited him to church and help lead a family to Christ Love. What a legacy he has left in his family. Lynda, Tom, and Amy you were so blessed to have such a great dad who loved you unconditionally. Betty you and Roger's marriage was an example to others on what love is. My prayers are with each of you. Heaven is rejoicing that Roger is finally home. My dad and him are having so much fun rejoicing. Some day we will go home and rejoice with them
God Bless,
Diane Miller

Lynda -
We were so sorry to hear of your father's death. Just knowing what a great person you are and how well you've raised your own family, I'm sure that your father was very proud of you and your accomplishments. There will be a sadness for you but remember all the wonderful memories that you will have forever. Take care.

I worked with Roger for a number of years during his Goodyear Polyester days but had not seen him in years. Just last year, by chance I came in contact with him regarding the Greensburg Lions Club. Roger was so helpful making arrangements a couple of times for the rental of the lodge for our dart league. He was always such a nice, straight up guy and a gentlemen at work. I am sure he will be missed dearly by his family and friends.
