The Weston community lost a kind man, friend to many, and a champion of the arts on August 13th. The Weston Music Society announced that long time Roswell resident and former Music Society President, Roger Lander passed away. 

“Roger Lander was the consummate professional not only in his real estate career but as a philanthropist, as a Weston Rotarian and Past Present of the Weston Music Society, he was always giving so selflessly of his time, especially his amazing piano abilities and charming personality.” Commented friend, colleague and fellow Weston Music Society board member, Rose Sklar, “He will be truly missed.”

A long term member of the Weston Rotary Club, Lander was known to be an extremely giving person with both his time and money. Roger was a native of New York and graduated from Hofstra University. He worked for over 25 years as a realtor in South Florida and Weston in particular. 

Roger was a great patron of the arts, especially music in Weston. His passion for music led to him becoming President of the Weston Music Society and his championing many of the society’s initiatives that we all enjoy today.
