Jul. 20, 2014

Born in Scranton, PA but later moved to Reno in 1972. Roger fought a brave battle with cancer, which in the end cancer won. He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend. After high school Roger joined the Air Force. He worked in the printing industry his whole career. Roger specialized in the operation of the Kluge printing press, which gave him the nickname "Kluge Kid" to many in the industry. He worked for several printing companies throughout the Reno & Sparks area.

Just as in his career he worked especially hard at being a great husband to his wonderful wife Ann for nearly 53 years. Roger was a great provider to his wife and their 4 children, R.J. (Catherine), Andrew (Kristy), Jeannie (Josh) and Beth (Ron). He has 7 wonderful grandchildren Stephen, Catherine, Marysa, Brittany, Taylor, Austin and Zach. He has one surviving sister Christina.

He was preceded in death by both of his loving parents Leo & Mary, a sister Janice and a brother John.

We would like to give a special thanks to Dr. Singh at Reno Oncology and the doctors and staff at Renown South Meadows.

Memorial Services will be held at Ross, Burke & Knobel on Friday, July 25 at 3:00 pm. 2155 Kietzke Lane, Reno, NV 89502.
