He grew up on a farm near Clarence, IA with his parents Roger and Ruth; sister Jeanine; and brother Brett where he met Diana, his high school sweetheart and beloved wife of 58 years.

Roger will be deeply missed by his wife Diana; son Eric (Janell) Baldwin; daughter Heather Baldwin; grandsons Austin Snyder and Andy (Tylar) Schlichte; great-granddaughter Addison Schlichte; sister Jeanine (Mike) Fuller; brother Brett Baldwin; and many nieces; nephews; and friends.
