Roger died peacefully in his sleep surrounded by family on June 17, 2017. Roger graduated from high school in Tower, Minnesota and then attended Stout State College.  Always a “Ranger” at heart Roger returned with his family to Tower for the 4th of July every year until he was no longer able to travel.

While at 3M as an engineer he traveled the world and developed several products which he earned patents for. He earned his private pilot’s license in 1989 and enjoyed flying Cessnas for several  years . He and Georgia bought a hobby farm near Almelund where he fell in love with old tractors and mowing grass.  He was active in the Lions Club in Minneapolis.  He was active as a volunteer in local DFL politics in Chisago County after retiring.  He enjoyed driving an antique tractor pulling a float in many area parades.
