TRIBUTE TO ROGER DWYER (article first published : 2007-04-11)

Having heard of Roger Dwyer’s death from Murray McGibbon, I just wanted to say how sad I am to hear that Rog has passed away and to place on record how much I respected and admired him.

I have such fond memories of Rog. I'll always remember him as our rock in the drama department (NAPAC Drama Department). When the department was in a state of frenetic madness (which was frequently) he was always able to temper the chaos with his kind and wise words. There were many times when I was stressed or confused and Roger was able to put things in perspective for me in just a few words.

He was also so generous as a colleague. Thanks to Roger's (and Murray's) support and belief in me, I was able to gain opportunities that I would probably never have had if I had been working in another department or organisation.

And mostly I loved his sense of fun. I will never forget the hearty guffaws emanating from his office followed by Laina's loud hoots. I thank him for the many happy times that we shared together.

Much love to his wife and family. I am thinking of you. - Bev Steward
