From Tom Buda: I’ve been friends with Roger for over 50 years. We met at Weeden & Co., my first job after the military. I worked for him for a few years before he left for Chase Manhattan. Roger introduced me to the firm. He took my resume and was instrumental in helping me secure a position. We both worked in the Operations Dept. at 1 NYP, which was then headed by Barry Sullivan.
Writing this for Roger today helped me reminisce. We worked hard, laughed a lot and had fun times together. He was a special guy.
We remained good friends since those days, speaking with each other on a regular basis and crossing paths several times on my Arizona trips. We knew everything about each other and our respective families. I will miss him dearly.
