He gave 150% in everything he did from ranching to farming and took great pride in his work. Roger loved life. When he wasn't working, Bubba could be found in his fishing boat, at the local watering hole, on the golf course, or having a beer with his buddies. After retirement, Bubba enjoyed tooling around the countryside, keeping tabs on all the farmers and enjoying the scenery. Whether he was playing or watching, Roger was an avid sports lover, his favorite team being the Huskers. Roger loved his family. His children and grandchildren were his pride and joy. He also loved spending time with his great-grandkids. Roger gained his wings on May 20, 2018, after a hard battle with Parkinson's.
