  • Brenda & I never had the opportunity to meet Roger however we have been good friends with Glenn & Valerie for a long time. During that time I have never seen Glenn behave in any fashion other than as a Gentleman. Glenn would often speak of his father & of the influence he had on Glenn. It is easy to see the values that Roger fostered in his family. We offer our condolences to Glenn, Valerie, Cameron & the entire Lemmerick family

  • Deepest condolences to you all — Dora, Gail, Barb, Trish, Glenn, Jim, Murray, Mark, and all your families.
    It was always nice to visit with Uncle Roger, he was so easy to talk to. He would always ask what was going on in my life. Uncle Roger was simply a “nice guy” and he will be missed.
    Our thoughts are with you all at this sad time. Take care.

  • Dear Lemmerick Family & Friends, our deepest condolences on the loss of Uncle Roger. I have fond memories of your entire family coming out to the farm to visit. Rog, loved to eat like the rest of us. ( How could you be married to a Berscheid & not love food, right). He always had a smile & kind words. And now reunited with the Berscheid clan, it will surely be more fun times in heaven. Be well, & know that we are all richer for having know Uncle Roger. Bob, Savanna, Kaitee & Danielle .
