Roger Andersen Obituary

Andersen, Roger P. Age 85, of St. Paul, passed away peacefully on November 6, 2013. Preceded in death by parents, Ole and Esther; brother, Howard; half-brother William; and wife, Audrey. Survived by son, Tony; daughter, Jan (Rich) Sames; and nieces, Nicole and Sarah Sames. Roger grew up on St. Paul's East Side, attended Johnson High School, and later received degrees from the University of Minnesota and Macalester College. As a young man he worked on the mighty iron ore carrying ships of the Great Lakes. He served in the Navy and was stationed in Hawaii at the end of WWII. He later worked for Xerox, and as an artist, teacher and real estate agent. His last job was at St. Paul's main post office where he worked well past retirement age. Roger lived life to the fullest and had an incredible passion for traveling and exploring. He loved sailing, scuba diving, skiing, and especially flying his airplane. And buffets. He really loved buffets. Roger had the ability to make friends wherever he went, including the Alton Memory Care Residence where he spent his final years. He was truly blessed to have maintained his cheerful demeanor until the very end. Those who knew "Rog" will remember him for his amazing charisma and sense of adventure. He will be greatly missed.
