Mr. Acton’s family,
Mr. Acton was the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time). It was his inspiration, teaching abilities and knowledge that made me want to become a history teacher too. Thanks to him, I had a wonderful 34 year career in education.
Mr. Acton was a wonderful story teller that was able to capture history and bring it to life. He installed a love of history in me and I hope I was able to pass on just a portion of his knowledge and skills to my students. He was the “GOAT”.
My deepest condolences,
David W. Wishard

To Mr.Acton:s Family,
My deepest sympathy to you all; Roger was my department chair for years at Faust Jr. High until he retired. He was the
definition of professional. Always there to
give support and positive feedback. Rest in peace Roger.
