    Thank you all for your kindness and words of praise for my brother, Roger Deschene. He was a great brother. He enjoyed the the S.F. giants baseball team and loved to go to their games. He had a love for all kinds of sports. He loved his family. He was good to his nieces and nephews, with whom he remained close all these years. He was called uncle Tiny for years by his nieces and nephews, because he was so tall. He will be missed by all. Kay

    I am proud to say Roger was a great supervisor to work for at CCC. I learned a great deal from him over the years. God bless his family.

    Sad it has been almost 29 years since we were in the academy together. Sorry to hear this news. Too bad there are no pictures posted.
