Age 68, of Zimmerman. Passed away on April 20, 2023.
Roger was a wonderful father, grandfather, brother, uncle, friend, mentor, and colleague. He was a cowboy at heart, an expert marksman, and a mediocre dancer. He moved through the world with humor, forgiveness, and grace.

Roger spent more than 40 years as engineer, project manager, innovator, pioneer, and expert in the development of grain-handling systems on a global scale. Roger was a maker of bread, beer, and chocolate.
Roger is survived by his children, Linda (Randal), Charlie (Teresa), and Beth; grandchildren, Dustin, Dallas (Jade), Alex, Nicholas, Alice, and Chas; great-granddaughters, Aleena and Avaiah; siblings, Doug (Sherry), Tim (Shawn), Jeanne Marie Tovsen, Jeff (Marianne), Greg, and Don; nieces, nephews, other family and friends.
