He taught his children and wife sacrifice for what you believe in.

After Rodger retired again from the Navy, working civil service, he went to work for Donna. Donna had a small transport business with three transport vehicles when they married, and together they turned it into quite a little fleet. Rodger enjoyed traveling with his wife, going to Bingo, visiting his family, fishing, tinkering with wood in the garage on little projects that Donna would brainstorm up for him, going to church, and playing cards with friends.
