Roger D. Erdmann

Roger D. Erdmann, age 73 of Shawano, passed away on Friday, December 27, 2013 in Appleton. Born on July 21, 1940 in Milwaukee, he is the son of the late Wilfred and Evelyn (Mueller) Erdmann. On May 11, 1974 in Berlin, Wisconsin, Roger was united in marriage to Dorothy Rutkauskas. Roger had a passion for nature and was an avid outdoorsman - enjoying camping, back-packing, hunting, and boating. His love of boating most likely peaked in his younger years, while racing hydro-plane boats from coast to coast. His thrill-seeking may also have been fulfilled during his rodeo days, roping cattle while on the quarter horses he adored. Above all, Roger thought the world of his family and showed them his love by teaching his children to waterski and sharing his fondness of nature.

Roger is survived by: his wife, Dorothy of Shawano; his 3 children, Shelly (Chad) Bildings of De Pere, Amy Erdmann of Oshkosh, William Erdmann of Oshkosh; a grandson, Brandon; and a brother, Lee (Bobbi) Erdmann of Berlin.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, December 30, 2013 at the First Presbyterian Church in Shawano with the Rev. Susan Phillips officiating. Visitation will be at the church from 9:00 a.m. until the time of the service. Swedberg Funeral Home is assisting the family with the arrangements.
