Roger lived with his parents on their family farm outside Jericho, then moving to Johnsburg where his parents retired from farming. Following his father’s death, Roger resided with his sisters exchanging times between Pipe and Chilton. His final home was that of the Villas in Mt.

Survivors include many nieces and nephews, cousins and friends. Roger was preceded in death by his parents, William and Sadie Schmitz; siblings, Delores Karls, Elvira Criter, LaVern Schmitz, and Erna Ludwig.
