Roger married Lois Ann Parsons on Dec. 31, 1948, in Jones, Michigan. He was a self-made man who loved his work and was recognized by his peers as being a leading farmer in Cass County.
Roger served on the Cass Co-operative Board, the Michigan National Bank Board of Cassopolis, and was a member of the Lions Club of Cassopolis. In his younger years Roger played on an area-wide baseball league. He enjoyed hunting, loved his dogs, and played on the Diamond Lake Golf League. Thanks to his wife, who dragged him all over the world, Roger and Lois traveled extensively.

He was preceded in death by his parents; one sister, Ruth Tietsort; and one brother, Robert Stamp.
Roger will be accorded Full Military Honors in a private family ceremony in East Union Cemetery in Porter Township.
