Roman is the dear, loving and caring father of The Bridgeport News' editor, Janice Racinowski.She and her siblings, Donna, Deborah, and David, were blessed with "the best Dad ever. He was the family's Superhero...one who we were so proud to call Dad and could always look up to for guidance, wisdom, and most of all, love. Now our hearts are heavy in sorrow and it is hard to put into words how much we will miss him. We have comfort in knowing he is reunited with his loving wife, Theresa, our dear mother, and know that from above they still will be watching over and guiding us. We will cherish the many memories from his 93 years here on earth and he will live forever in our hearts. Until we meet again Daddy, know that our love for you will never end and we will miss you dearly. Your loving children, Donna, Jan, Dee, and Dave "
