Roger died peacefully at his home on the afternoon of February 27, 2017. Roger was born in Doniphan, Missouri, in 1936. Roger was first hired into the work of the Church in 1958, and in the fall of 1959 he was sent out as a ministerial trainee. In October of 1960 he married his loving wife of 56 years, Janice Roemer. As newlyweds, they began the first assignment of their longtime ministry in Long Beach and Los Angeles, California. He and Janice served the Church faithfully in 28 different congregations over the course of 54 years, and Roger was a senior writer for Church publications. Roger was known for being firmly grounded in God’s Word. He was used powerfully by God to preach the gospel and to help prepare God’s people for the soon coming Kingdom. His legacy is truly one of agape love that will be felt for years to come by those whom he selflessly and tirelessly served.
