Any word on if he's here on this plane of existence
or does he reside in The fourth Plane of existence ?
Be nice to know the place where the thoughts need be directed...MG

If you're referring to Roger Tanner, I miss him too.

PO's didn't do anything dumb.
They kept the car running with minimal fixes. THANK YOU!

He was slowly slipping. Sure he is off the grid ('net). Guess most of us will slowly drop off at some point...

This car is now very nearly completely done. Sure to find something else, but not now.........

Roger is now in a care facility. It's sad to see such intelligence and knowledge slip away.

Take care of yourselves and your families. Time here is fleeting.



His project lives on.

Kelvin.

Best wishes to the rocket man.

We both worked as engineers on space flight systems at VAFB, though not at the same time, we knew some of the same people.

Roger is well respected in the discipline.

Regulars here could tell something was off on Rogers posts but his obvious well meaning and caring additude would shine through. I lost my Mom this past June as she reached end stage Dementia after 2 years in a Memory Care facility. It’s a terrible disease as a person loses their very essence and personality towards the end. We’ve lost a great guy and frequent contributor.
