Roger was a graduate of Chadron State College and a proud member of the United States Air Force.

He enjoyed spending his free time scuba diving, sky diving, flying planes, snow skiing, painting, photography and flying RC planes. 

Roger brought to life what dreams are made of. There was not a challenge he could not conquer. His heart was full of wonder for exploring new horizons with no fear of the unknown. He was extremely passionate about his dive buddies. They brought out the best in him, especially under water. He was a husband and a father like no other. His honor and integrity about who he was will reign forever in the hearts of those who loved him. Words can't express the loss of this exceptional husband, father, and friend.
