Loving memories of our brother in law, Roger, who loved his retirement and spent his final years at the Millersburg flea market selling tractor toys and farm items. He loved visiting with folks there and will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace.

Gene, Muriel, Kara, Matt, and Jaymeson Metcalf

To All Family Members of Roger;
My deepest sympathy to all. It was a pleasure to work at the Holmes County Flea Market with Roger. He loved talking to everyone and the market will not be the same with out him. He was a member of our flea market family, too.

My husband and I wanted to express our sadness for the death of Mr. Sample. We frequently visited the Holmes County Flea Market, and was informed this Saturday while at the Flea Market that Mr. Sample had passed. I treasure the Precision John Deere tractor that I purchased from him a few years ago. God Speed.
