Hello friends
I just recieved a PM from Spilterman saying that Roger Clark aka Rex had passed away on February 26th 2014.Roger had been battling cancer for a number of years and for some time we had been in touch on a regular basis , I have fond memories of our antics on LJs were Roger ,Grizz and I would try and out silly each other and the many private communications telling me how was really looking forward to feeling well enough to get back in his shop. Roger was fine guy with a great sense of humor.

My greatest of sympathy and condolences to his wife and family.

God bless & RIP Roger

Roger was a great internet friend and a great person to talk to. He emailed me his life history and one point in our talking and he had a great and adventuresome life.

He was always wanting to get back into his shop and if nothing else just sit there and look at all of his stuff. unable to do anything, but feeling the joy of at least being in the shop.

My prayers are with his family and may his wife feel his love ever present in her life.

Roger was always “the life of the party” on the ‘Stumpy Thread’.

RIP – You will be missed but not forgotten my friend.

i am so sorry to hear this, i’ve been wondering just the past few days what was going on with roger, ill always remember the first time i spoke to roger, his british accent threw me off , but he was a wonderful man, and i know how much he just loved to be in his shop, even if he couldn’t do much, man, i shall miss him.i shall always remember the fun we had , he loved to enjoy his friends on jocks, always wanting folks to get along when things got a bit out of hand, God bless you roger and your family.

So sorry to hear this… Rex was a great guy, followed him for years – I recall him talking about chemo back in 2012, thought he had beaten it, he was just on the Stumpy thread a few weeks back.
