Roger L. Thornhill, 74, passed away peacefully on Sunday, November 28, 2021, surrounded by the love of his family.  He was the beloved husband of Rosemary A. Thornhill, with whom he shared 54 years of marriage.

 Roger was known for his dry sense of humor and was very social.  He loved walking everywhere and getting to know people on his travels.  He was a loving and devoted husband and father who enjoyed spending time with his family, playing chess, and taking long car rides and trips to the mountains.

 In addition to his wife Rosemary, Roger is survived by his cherished children, his son Shaun Thornhill and his wife Robin, his daughter Shayna Doulames and her husband Jack, his precious grandchildren Dane and Olivia Doulames, and Seth and Lauren Thornhill, his beloved brothers Eugene Thornhill and his wife Eleanor, and Dean Thornhill and his wife Mona.  He also leaves his caring brother-in-law Carlos Mondejar.  He was predeceased by his sister-in-law Catherine Mondejar.  He also leaves his special and dear to his heart lifelong friends Susan and John Traficante, and Cookie and Henry Consoli in addition to his wonderful nieces and nephews.
