Kelly, Jeanne and family, Ned and I are deeply saddened about the passing of your beloved Father Roger. Your Dad was a wonderful person with a great sense of humor, always pleasant joking making others laugh. We are thankful that we had the opportunity to visit him around Christmas Holidays when we were in Massachusetts with our family. Roger would never let me forget the scar on his nose from my diamond ring. We always laugh about it and I will never forget him. It was time that our Lord called him home to live his eternal life. Our Lord teaches us to realize that this world is passing that our true future is the happiness of heaven ,that life on earth is short and the life to come eternal. I know in my heart that the Lord lead him safely through death to the endless joy of heaven. Ned and I send our love and deepest condolences to the family during this difficult time in your life. With Love and blessing, Ned and Joan The Villages FL 32162
I am so sorry for your loss. Roger was a veteran & fire fighter which just goes to show what a self less man he was. He took time to appreciate all the special things life has to offer. He loved sitting by Kelly's pool taking in the sun & listening to the 3 tenors or Sinatra and just spending quality time with his amazing family, He loved going to Freddie's for breakfast with Kelly & Joan and how all the girls would swoon over him He loved watching the Patriots & would never miss his 4pm date with Judge Judy. I was so blessed to have gotten to know Roger and he would always leave me laughing. God Bless you all love Lori
Dear Conor. And all the Brennan Family, My condolences on Rogers passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Mary T. Mac Donald
To Jeanne and to all your family, I am so sorry for your loss..May Dad Rest In Peace.. 🙏🙏✝️ Fly high Mr Brennan.. 🕊
Roger and Joanie were like second parents to me. They had an open door policy, I never had to knock , I was always welcomed. So much so that I once let myself in and crashed on their couch one night. Roger offered my breakfast the next morning. He always has a joke, a smile, or a hug for you. You will be missed Roger, thanks for always being so good to me. God Speed
