Roger was a music teacher in Winner, SD and led the hornline with the Governaire’s Drum and Bugle corps in the 1990’s.

Roger’s career in information systems began when Gateway Computers opened in Sioux Falls and took an interview with his college friend. As a young professional, Roger would work the phones as a computer tech at night and take Microsoft Certification classes during the day. 

Roger worked at Gateway 2000, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of MN, and eventually at CCC Information Systems.

Roger enjoyed building computers and video games, riding his Harley Davidson, shooting sports, cars and tinkering. He was a devoted dog owner and was known throughout his neighborhood as Rocky’s human.

When I think of Roger the first thing that comes to my mind is him standing outside in the backyard playing his trumpet. Living next door to the Berggren boys is a memory I will never forget. Games of baseball, hide and seek and both he and Richard hitting golf balls in our yard because it was big enough to do so. May the Lord Bless Richard, Paul and the rest of the family as they go through this time.
