Roger was a life long member of the Renton Eagles #1722, he and his wife Lois spent their weekends playing BINGO, having dinner and dancing. They were also members of the Eagles Travel Club and enjoyed weekend outings with the other members in their campers and trailers.

Roger has been fighting MS for the past 30 plus years. But that never stopped him from trying to do things,and if he could not physically do it he could sure tell you how to get it done step by step inch by inch.

In the last 5 years Roger spent most of his days working jig saw puzzles, word search puzzles,and watching movies. He enjoyed the Mariners,and the Seahawks he was a true 12th man. His afternoon all time favorite was to watch Let's Make A Deal.
He also enjoyed his sweets a Milkshake any flavor would do,a good Hazelnut Latte, and home made cookies were his faorite.

The family would like to thank Doina Savencu and her staff at New Options Adult Family Home,for the excellent care they gave him.

In lieu of flowers donations on Roger's behalf can be made to the Renton Fire Department or the MS Society.
