Roger Brian- loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend- died peacefully in his sleep on December 7, 2021 at the age of 79. He will be remembered for his joyful heart, kind spirit, puns, Indiana Jones hat, and crazy handshakes. He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Robin; 5 children and spouses- Roger Scott & Randi Taylor, Catherine & Carmine Santa, Alexis Taylor, Lauren & Eddi Rivera, and Aaron Taylor; 6 grandchildren- Cristian, Elijah, Emily, Coralee, Esmeralda, and Carmine; and his little “squirt” (sister) Barbara Taylor Franzese.

Roger was born in The Bronx, NY, resided for most of his adult life in Newton, NJ, and moved to Ocala, FL in 2000. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from Upsala University in 1966. He enjoyed working on a variety of do-it-yourself projects, from rebuilding car transmissions to adding a new back room to his house. He also enjoyed creating vibrant pastel drawings, watching Star Trek and The Blues Brothers, and completing crossword puzzles. He had the ability to make everyone feel comfortable and loved. To know him was an honor, and to remember him brings a smile. He will be deeply missed.

Services will be held in both Florida and New Jersey. Service times and locations will be announced at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to the Alzheimer’s Foundation, Interfaith of Ocala, Samaritan’s Purse, or the Salvation Army.

    Oh my dear big brother, how you are missed ! I remember the 18 year old spending SO long to get that pompadour just right in the front ! I remember my big brother chasing (on crutches) a guy who did Not have good intentions toward his little sister ! And I remember singing the FreedomLand ad song to his friends so I could get into the park for free through the employees gate! I remember so many things, but mostly he was my idol- the protector, the goofy one with a sense of humor. I will love you forever- until we meet again ( with Diana) in Heaven
    Love always Sprout

    I will always miss Uncle Roger’s quiet and admirable resolve. Our family was so lucky to have him and his absence will be deeply felt.
