I am greatly saddened to learn that Roger Perry has lost his battle with cancer. He was a strong Otago Chess Club and later North Island player who played in a few NZ championships. He also represented PNG in an Olympiad. He and I were youngsters together at the OCC. RIP Roger. Many of us will greatly miss you.

His funeral was held today at St John's Presbyterian Church in Wellington, a church at which i used to worship.
