Below is an email I received from Ernie Haase today concerning Roger. After battling leukemia for 12 years, God has finally called him home. My heart grieves for his dear family, but yet rejoices to know Roger is out of pain and praising the Savior which he sang about!
March 10th, 1959 - March 17th, 2007
It is with much sadness that I must tell you that our friend Roger Bennett has gone to be with the Lord. Scott Fowler just called and told me that Roger went peacefully and with his wife Debbie at his side. Roger Bennett, along with myself, George Younce, Glen Payne and Scott Fowler had the great blessing of traveling together for the last 10 years of the Cathedral Quartet's career. Roger made those long miles very fun and enjoyable.
The sadness we all feel right now is not for Roger ..... he's healthy and whole ... free at last from the body of disease! Our grief is for his family and for our own personal loss. Not having Roger around is what makes our hearts heavy.
I and all the Signature Sound family grieve today along with all the Gospel Music world.
We will miss you ol buddy!
