With profound sadness we announce the passing of Roger on February 7, 2022.
A mechanical engineer, spending the majority of his career at Kennedy Space Center, Roger contributed to the success of the shuttle program. While in high school, college, and at the Cape he established friendships that lasted his lifetime. Roger took pride in mentoring young engineers and guys at the gym. He was an intense wrestler in college and enjoyed fishing as a young boy.
His love for fishing is what most will remember about him. He was fearless in deep sea fishing, even running his 21-foot Grady White to the weather buoy 120 miles with only one motor! When not boating or fishing, Roger enjoyed working out and cycling. He was focused and determined; some may even say lovingly stubborn.
A dedicated husband, father, son, and friend. Roger will be incredibly missed by all that knew him. He was the beloved husband of Kristen, father of daughters Karah and Kayla, and son of Robert. Predeceased by his mother Kimlan.
A Celebration of Life will be held on March 6, 2022 from 1:00-4:00pm at the Brannon Center, 105 South Riverside Drive in New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168.
105 South Riverside Drive, New Smyrna Beach, Florida 32168
Always a smile and great stories he had indeed.
Rest in peace BIL. Love SIL.
