On July 18, 2008 he married his best friend, Sharon Lebens, at their home in Stockholm, WI.
Roger was a jokester and the life of any party. He loved to laugh and make others laugh, and he always had a smile on his face and a friendly hello for everyone. He loved to spend time with his family and friends, and he enjoyed gardening, going for pontoon rides on the lake, fishing, hunting and riding around in his Jeep. His family and friends will miss him immensely.
Roger is survived by his wife Sharon of Stockholm, WI; his daughters, Amy (Clay) Tix of Red Wing, MN, Jill (Ryan) Full of Farmington, MN; step-children, Jessica Wright of Princeton, MN, Jackie Lebens of Austin, TX, Jeff Hadac of Austin, TX; grandchildren, Jason Dean Haglund, Elizabeth Haglund, Brianna Tix, Madison Full; step-grandchildren, Erin Lebens, Nathan Wright and Matthew Wright; siblings, Larry (Denise) Marcks, Jerry (Terri) Marcks, Donna (Russ) Roundy, Paul (Tammy) Marcks; many nieces and nephews and countless friends.
