Roger was a big fan of The Ohio State Buckeyes and Pittsburgh Steelers and would watch the games on holidays and loved having dogs around the house over the years.
Roger was a man of many talents, there wasn’t much he couldn’t fix. From working on rebuilding older cars with his brothers, tinkering on old TV’s and electronics he would always keep busy with projects. He loved music and used to play guitar quite a bit. The family spent many summers up at the lakes where Roger and Maurine had a camper setup for the family to go boating and jet skiing. He did deer hunting trips with some of his work buddies, he was a pilot for a handful of years and had his own smaller personal plane. Some other hobbies included scuba diving in Ohio caverns, motorcycling, and boating.
