After a love-at-first-sight encounter with Margaret Kurth, Roger married the love of his life on April 25, 1953 at St. Paul's United Church of Christ. Their relationship of faithful love has been an inspiration to the family, and a wonderful heritage. They would've celebrated their 62nd anniversary this year. Roger and Margaret enjoyed many years of camping together, fishing trips to Canada, annual trips to Florida to celebrate holidays with their daughter and her husband; traveling in their RV, attending Brewer baseball games, family get-togethers, cookouts and especially Christmases.

The family wishes to express their deepest appreciation to Dr. Hamied Rezazadeh and the entire staff at the Aspirus Cancer Center and Oncology Dept in Aspirus Wausau Hospital. Their respectful, loving, tender care of our husband/father/grandpa was a deep comfort for us, and Roger's wish to pass away while in their care was granted. "Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outer man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things that are seen, but at the things that are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things that are not seen are eternal. For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens" (2 Corinthians 4:17-5:1).
