In his younger years, he worked for Minneapolis Moline and later ran Preston Automotive with Orville Ruud. He then was a Street Maintenance Superintendent for the City of Preston for 24 years where he later retired. Roger liked to tinker on lawnmowers and other various vehicles and he loved his old trucks. He had a passion for mowing lawn and spending time at the family farm. He also spent time trout fishing and golfing at the Old Barn Resort with his friend Keith and made time to go to the B&B Bowl in Preston nearly every day to visit with the people dear to his heart. In addition to his hobbies, he loved spending time with his grandkids. Roger was a simple man who liked the simple things in life. He always had a smile and a joke for you.
