Roger Wills
Fort Walton Beach - Roger Wills, 88, passed peacefully into Heaven on Tuesday, November 10, 2020 in Fort Walton Beach, FL. Roger was born to Alfred and Mabel Wills in Lansing Michigan, where he grew up. He attended Michigan State University before enlisting in the U.S. Military in 1952. He married the love of his life, Marcia, in 1954. Roger served his country for 32 years, becoming an expert EOD technician. He retired as a Chief Master Sergeant and was well regarded throughout the EOD community. He earned a bronze star and a purple heart for his gallant effort in Vietnam. Following his military service, he enjoyed traveling the county with his wife. Roger moved to Florida in 2008, where he became an active member of Trinity United Methodist Church and was the President of the EOD Masterblasters from 2010-2013. Roger was selfless, kind, and exceedingly generous. His wife Marcia, his siblings, and son Mark precede him in death.

Love this gentle man. We met in our soup kitchen where he volunteered and later when he served in the church office each week. Better for knowing him. God bless his family. Marilyn Horton
