Roger Roberts

Rufus “Roger” Roberts, age 103, of Adams, Wisconsin died peacefully on November 12, 2020 at Liberty Village, Adams, Wisconsin.

Private services will be held at a later date.

Roger was born July 21, 1917 in Monroe Center, Wisconsin to William and Elizabeth Robert’s. Roger was married to his beloved wife Edna (Paulson) on November 10 of 1945 approximately 7 days after being discharged from the U.S. Army. Roger served from Jan. 13, 1942 until Honorably Discharged as a Staff Sgt. on Oct. 30, 1945, he served in France, Belgium, and Germany. He was very proud to serve his country and had many stories and pictures whenever the subject came up. Roger was a lifetime member of the VFW.

Roger was preceded in death by his wife Edna in 2001. Roger is survived by three children: Larry (Audrey) Roberts, Las Vegas, Nevada; Judy (Dennis) Allen, Portage, Wisconsin; and Kenneth (Cheryl) Roberts, Bradenton, FL; five grandchildren: Lawrence Roberts, Shannon Skortz, Trent Allen, Lexi Vanden Huevel, and Bret Allen; ten great-grandchildren: James Roberts, Avery Skortz, Tyler Skortz, Kobe Skortz, Chloe Allen, Luke Allen, Nataly Ballweg, Bella Ballweg, Apollo Vanden Huevel, and Ani Allen; and one great-great-grandchild, Madyson Westmoreland.

After his discharge from the Army, Roger worked in the family business, Robert’s Brothers Sales, initially running the auto body and repair and a wrecking yard. He was very much a people person and moved into the sales of camping trailers, mobile homes, and finally furniture and appliances. Roger was known for his mechanical ability to fix/repair almost anything, he made many friendships over his career working with people.

Roger always enjoyed his large garden and giving away the produce he raised. Roger and Edna enjoyed spending winters in Florida during their retirement years with many friends and relatives stopping to visit them. He will be missed by all his relatives and friends. The family would like to give special thanks to Rev. Jane Quam, Heartland Hospice Care, a special thanks to Laura and Ashley, and Liberty Village staff. Roger had a knack to form friendships with all who met him. You were a great Dad, Grandpa, Great Grandpa, and GreatGreat Grandpa. RIP Dad

    My deepest sympathy to all of Rogers family. He was such a great person. I will never forget the first time I met Roger as one of his many Caregivers at Liberty Village. He sang to me & after I gave him a shower, he jokingly said that I had to pay him for the show. He always brightened my days singing & joking around. He will surely be missed by his family at Liberty Village. He always sang “Let me call you sweetheart,” amongst a couple others. I’m honored that I had the privilege of knowing him and caring for him. I’m happy that I got to celebrate 2 of his 103 Birthday’s with him. I’m going to miss you Roger! RIP You waited & fought a long time. Fly high Roger
    Love, Lisa
