Roger is survived by his loving wife Sheila whom he adored and was devoted to for 41 years. He raised four children who learned from him and admired him. Seven grandchildren cherished Roger as their Papa and one more arriving very soon will hear many wonderful, funny, and curious stories about her Papa. He leaves behind two brothers, a twin sister, and nieces and nephews.

Roger was diligent and hardworking in his career working with Hydraulics. He spent four decades with the same company starting as a mechanic and retiring as the service manager. He had a reputation in the company, throughout the many different states, for his mechanical trouble-shooting ability on large hydraulic equipment. He always worked at his hometown facility but was called to sites as far away as Pennsylvania for his expertise.
