He married Ernestine Akins on April 6, 1968. They enjoyed 55 years of marriage. He was a self-employed contractor (Billings Construction). Roger enjoyed bowling and competed on Bowling for Dollars, a local television show in Rochester, NY. He was an avid camper, enjoyed frequent trips to the casinos and attended numerous Rochester Amerks hockey games.

Roger retired in 2005 to devote his time to caring for his granddaughter.

George S. Patton once said, “It is foolish and wrong to mourn the man who died. Rather we should thank God that such a man lived.” All those that knew Roger are definitely thankful.
