He was also responsible for reviving Alcester Tennis Club in the 1970s and played rugby for the air force during his national service.

He married his wife Margaret and the couple had three children, Denise, David and Deborah in the 1960s.

The couple went on many adventurous trips together including to the base camps at Mount Everest, walking the Inca Trail and visiting the Arctic and Antarctic regions.

Roger worked for NFU for his whole career finally retiring from the organisation in 1994.

After he retired, Roger was a leading light in Stratford’s rambling community, becoming chairman of the Stratford Ramblers and contributing a regular walking feature to the Herald’s monthly Focus magazine.

Roger’s wife Margaret said: “He had a great sense of humour and I could always see a little twinkle in his eye when he was telling little stories to people. Roger would do anything for anybody and everything he did had to be very honest, I think because of his background in the insurance industry.

“We’ve had so many flowers and messages of support since he died, it’s nice that he has remained in people’s thoughts.”

A funeral service was held at Oakley Wood Crematorium on Wednesday 10 February).
