Roger was born in Salt Lake City on May 2, 1953, and enjoyed an idyllic childhood filled with sports, family trips, paper routes, and swimming pools with siblings. In his youth he developed great wit and a dry sense of humor that would only get cheesier as he got older!
Roger lived a life full of service, dedicating 10 years to the Air Force and Army National Guards and two separate 2-year missions for his church in the Philippines and California. He spent his entire life volunteering in a variety of leadership roles within his church and within the Boy Scouts organization. With a deep love for the Stevensville community, Roger served 11 years as the Town Judge and Court Clerk and was twice elected to the School Board.
Roger and Glenda fell in love on a blind date, and for the next 46 years their love and devotion grew as they built their family and life together. Roger loved Glenda more than anything, and he consistently demonstrated this by word and deed.
Spending most of his professional career overseeing church facilities in Western Montana, Roger’s favorite job was being dad to his 6 children. Despite his extremely busy schedule, he somehow found time to individually father each child by coaching sports teams, planning camping trips and river floats, cheering at all their performances, and holding individual chats on Sundays. Through his example his children learned how to serve God, live true, and work hard.
While Roger will be missed as an honorable husband, father, grandfather, and friend, we are grateful to have been enriched by his incredible life and for the knowledge that families are forever.
