Roger spent his life working as an auto mechanic and was very talented at fixing any type of vehicle. He had an ornery since of humor. For example, if you asked him how he was feeling it would be common for him to reply, “With my fingers.” Knowing Roger’s sense of humor, we knew he would appreciate the following comment about him as a dad. “Dads are like chocolate chip cookies; they may have chips or be totally nutty, but they are sweet and make the world a better place.”
Roger enjoyed listening and singing along to old country music, working crossword and word search puzzles, and playing solitaire. He was a friendly person who never knew a stranger. Roger was a wonderful father who loved his children. He was a selfless man who never wanted to impose on anyone. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
