---- — Roger William Roberson, 74, of Wildwood, Fla., and Rushville, passed away peacefully at home on the evening of Dec. 17, 2013. He was surrounded by his wife and children.

Born Sept. 18, 1939 in Saint Louis, Mo., he worked over 30 years as a designer at IBM. His design credits include the font Letter Gothic.
