One of the best teachers I ever had. He was one of the people who inspired me to go into teaching. Sad loss for the people of Itawamba county.

Roger taught me a lot about life. The biggest portion of my childhood memories involved him. From teaching me how to swim and hunting. He had a huge impact on my life. Prayers for Linda and the family.

His smile and laugh are unforgettable! He charmed us all, had goofy little nicknames for us and found a way to make everything seem fun. He never got around to scrubbing my freckles off with sandpaper, like he promised. I sure could have saved money on chemical peels and high priced facials if he had followed through. 😊 The loss of Mr. Crane is deeply felt. We all adored him! Sending all our hugs and love to you… Vondi Rondi

I grew up around Roger and his family mostly through association at Mt. Gilead Church of Christ. When Roger smiled, which was often, he smiled with his whole heart. My condolences to his family and his many friends on their loss of a loved one. He was a wonderful person.
