Roger was an avid camper and outdoorsman; he loved camping off the grid, off-roading, overlanding, and traveling the United States and internationally. He recently completed his goal of visiting all 50 states. He enjoyed meeting new people and spending time with his family and friends. He was happiest being out in nature and in his camper with his wife Susan, and faithful dogs Diesel, Sydney, Jake, and Jax. He especially loved his time with his daughter Sandy, son Scott, and grandchildren Isaac, Erin, Rebekah, and Anna Rose. Roger loved to cook and prepare camp meals with his camping group. He will be missed by his countless travel buddies and celebrated around many campfires.
