Roger Dick

Dad did not really want a long drawn out obituary, so I will keep this short and sweet.

Roger Herman Dick took his last breath surrounded by family at Seasons Hospice on Wednesday March 22, 2023.

Born in a farmhouse near Chester, Iowa on Monday, Feb. 17, 1936, Roger Dick grew up and graduated from High School in LeRoy, MN.  Served in the Navy following high school.  On Saturday Oct. 5, 1957, he married Bonnie Hawkins in LeRoy.  They had 3 children together Marcus, Kyle and Matthew.

Roger also worked for the Post Office and in addition the co-owner of Dick and Yates Roofing & Gutters.  After retirement from all of these adventures, he drove for Care Van and R&S service and as a volunteer shuttle bus driver for Bethal Lutheran church.

Roger & Bonnie were avid campers and could be found at the many campgrounds and RV parks any weekend when the ground was mostly snow free. And when the snow flew, they spent their free time snowmobiling and square dancing.

Roger was preceded in death by his parents, a sister Loraine and his youngest son Mathew.

Roger will be placed next to his youngest son at Grandview Memorial Gardens during a private celebration of life.

Memorials are encouraged to be made out to the Eagles Cancer Telethon.

Rochester Cremation Services is honored to serve the family. Memories and condolences of Roger may be shared at
