Roger D

Recommended Posts

A long time prospector in Gold Basin has passed away after a long illness.  Roger D was someone I could always count on to be at Gold Basin finding gold and meteorites from 2011-16+.  He knew more about it than anyone I knew.

Roger was one of the founding members of WSPA and he was always willing to help me when I got started looking for things with a metal detector.

I hope if you have a few stories about Roger you will share them with us.

One of the things that Roger did was make signs, street signs in his business.  One of the places he made signs for was the subdivided area on the North side of the railroad tracks in Franconia.  It is in the Eastern part of the strewn field for the Franconia Meteorites.  It seems that there were streets cut in but then a deal was made to include those areas in the wilderness.  Anyway, Roger found meteorites in that area.

Roger was a long time resident of Lake Havasu and there will be a memorial there on July 30.

I'll miss Roger.
