He was baptized as an infant and later confirmed at First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Gary, South Dakota. Roger and his family spent most of his childhood in Gary and he graduated from Gary High School with the class of 1977. He then furthered his education at Pipestone Technical College.

Roger was united in marriage to Brenda Brown in December of 1998 in Marshall. The family made their home in Russell. Roger worked several jobs and spent over 21 years at RH Sealcoating.
