Roger Kellmer R.I.P.

I first met Roger in 1994 when I brought my boat up to Bayview. I moored it at the Captain's Wheel where Roger was day bartender. I then moved to Bayview the next year.

Roger's nickname was the "Tireman." An avid fisherman, that was his handle on the marine radio.

I last saw Roger at the Bayview Mercantile just a few days ago. He was discovered dead in his home when a concerned friend went to check on him. He was a friend to all. He leaves a big hole in the social fabric of Bayview. He will be missed.
