After graduation Roger joined the army and was in the army from 1952-1954. On July 31, 1960, Roger was united in marriage to Peggy Crees at Canby Friends Church in Casey, IA. They made their home on a farm by Hudson, were they raised three wonderful children. Roger enjoyed watching tv, especially the history channel, driving his tractor in the Great Iowa Tractor Ride, playing cards, going out to breakfast every morning and winters in Texas.
