  1. Nancy and family, I am so very sorry about the death of Roger. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this most difficult time. He is in Gods arms now.

  2. Roger helped me so many times through his encouraging words, his faith was such an example to all of us. I now lift you all up in my prayers and I am here ready and willing to help in any way I can.

  3. Roger was a kind and giving man who always had time for a story or a fishing tale. Our sympathies to Nancy, Heidi and Debbie and the entire family.

  4. Rog Thanks for the talk on Saturday and many many times over the years.
    Hunting, fishing, gardening and the world of CAP won’t be the same
    without you. Prayers for you and the family

  5. I am the grandaughter of Otto Klawitter, one of Aunt Edna’s older brothers. As a young child, I spent some Sunday afternoons at the farm of Lavern and Edna and it is there where I learned how to ride a bicycle. My brother and I played with Roger. I am sorry for your loss of Roger, but I am glad of his Christian faith. Your faith in Jesus will sustain you during this time of sorrow……Trust in the Lord and He will direct your path. I too have lost my husband and I pray that our Lord will give you all peace and strength at this time!

  6. I am so sorry for your loss of Roger. My heart goes out to all of you. May you find comfort and hope in God’s promise of a resurrection we will have similar to that of Lazarus at John 11. He wants us to be able to see and enjoy the company of our loved ones again in a healthy condition (Isaiah 33:28) for countless generations of time. He promises a time very soon where no family will ever have to mourn the death of a loved ever again. Revelation 21:4. May God himself grant you great peace and comfort now during this grievous time.

  7. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
    Jim & Debbie Knickerbocker

  8. I knew Roger as a high school friend. I lived across Chicog Lake from Roger’s Uncle Al Klawitter and Aunt Clara Roebke. While watering our family flowers at the Spooner Cemetery today, I took a moment with brother Bill …..many good memories.
