Roger retired from Foremost Farms in Milan where he worked as an intake specialist in 2008.

He was a life-long member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Cassel.

His hobbies included tinkering in the garage and was pretty handy as an auto mechanic, loved watching his grandkids sporting events especially basketball and cheering on his favorite NASCAR driver. He loved to entertain those around him by playing his concertina. At one time Roger was a concertina player in a local concertina club.

Survivors include his loving wife Carol of Edgar; his daughter Gloria (Cabot) Litzer of Marathon and his son Scott Nowak of Wausau; his grandchildren: Brett (special friend Lisa Krautkramer), Caleb, Kolby and Jaden; his two brothers: James (Patty) Nowak of Stratford and Robert (Norma) Nowak of Edgar along with other nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends. 

Roger was preceded in death by his parents, a grandson Brandon, a brother Joseph Jr. and a sister-in-law Debbie Nowak.

His family extends their appreciation to the staff at Pride TLC Assisted Living in Weston for the wonderful care and compassion shown to Roger during his residency there.
