Roger M. Cheevers Jr. of Fond du Lac, WI is now home with his Savior.  He arrived home to the Lord whom he loved on June 23, 2022 at the SSM Hospice Home of Hope.

Roger was born December 27, 1941 in New Bern, NC, the son of Roger Sr and Laura Cheevers. He graduated from Goodrich High School in 1960, and on July 10, 1965 he married the love of his life, Carol Ann Vogt in Fond du Lac WI. Roger served in the US Army Reserve from 1962 -1969. Roger spent his working career in the Trucking Industry.

Roger cherished traveling and making memories with his wife Carol, loved beyond words being on the lake, fishing with his son Steven and grandsons, hunting with his lifelong friend Jerry, golfing with his Uncle Bob, and being up north with his daughters.

He is survived by his wife of 56 years Carol Cheevers of Fond du Lac, three children, Steven (friend Stasi) of Van Dyne, Jean Hilby (Robert) of Friendship, and Julie Van Deslunt (Patrick)of Fond du Lac.
