So, in addition he leaves behind his family of choice: Corey Wichersheim, Millie Wickersheim, Ashley Wickersheim, Brittney Wickershiem, Joey Wickersheim, Ryan Johnson, Shawn Whited, Andy Henderson, Amber Henderson, and a host of many other friends and family.
Roger was a truck driver for 28 years and loved getting to see all the sights and scenery that brought for him. He also loved his family and friends very much.
A celebration of life in his honor was held Saturday, Oct. 5, at Pickwick Landing State Park.
