  5. To Miss Bonnie and all of the Roper family, I offer you my most sincere sympathy at the loss of Roper. I knew him by his frequent visits to Dad's shop and his friendship with my Dad, Glen Sparrow. Roper will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  6. If this is the same R. O. Roper I knew in Lake Charles in the mid 1960's, then I am happy to have found this unusual man again. R.O. and I met while working at Chennault AFB for a civilian contractor refurbishing transport airplanes. I was about 22, and R.O. was a few years older, probably late 20's. He was from Georgia, had a prosthetic leg. We once spent the night in the Calcasieu Parish jail after getting into a fight against some other guys at a bar on Broad Street. I am now 74 years old, and I remember Rufus like it was yesterday. He had a deflective sense of humor that drew people to him. I have often thought of him all these years and wondered what became of R.O. I am sorry to learn of his death without being able to say hello again or goodbye. RIP, R.O…
