Roger Dee Bennet died of COVID-19 on September 26, 2020 after a month-long fight. He was 79 years old. He and his wife had just celebrated their 59th wedding anniversary and were already planning out their big 60th together.

Roger was an avid reader, baseball lover, animal lover and expert fish fryer (he also loved to fly fish). Before retiring he was an executive in the publishing industry, when he was known to sport a trim beard and smoke a pipe. He never stopped believing in justice.

Roger’s family wants people to honor him by supporting healthcare workers and wearing masks. He is missed deeply by his wife, three adult daughters, grandchildren, extended family and circle of friends.
