Roger joined Space Air as Operations and IT director in 1991 and spearheaded the introduction of the company's FileMaker system, which is still operational today.'
For many years Roger was secretary of the BTU Golfing Society (Thames Valley).
In concluding, Neil Afram said: 'This is the saddest time in our company's 30 year history, we have lost a highly respected colleague and a fantastic friend. In mourning his loss we celebrate his life and cherish the many great times we enjoyed in his company.'
