He enjoyed hunting, woodworking, gardening, and cutting firewood. In the last few years, Roger enjoyed splitting and wrapping campfire wood with his brother, Lloyd “Punk”. 

Roger will be greatly missed by his wife, Ginny, and their son Roger Lyle Beadle of Scottville.  He will also be sadly missed by his three children from his first wife, Judy Klinger, David (Joanie) of Carr Settlement, Lori (Peter) Dopson of Grand Rapids and Lisa (Norm) Slade of Muskegon.  He leaves behind seven grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren and three siblings; Marsha (Pete) Merkliger, Wanda (Lew) Squires, Lloyd (Sandi) Beadle, his brother-in-law, Elliott (Deanna) Taylor, his sisters-in-law, Karen Taylor and Janet (John) Husted, and his favorite cousin, Doug Beadle.

The family would like to express their deepest gratitude to Dr. Mary O’Callaghan and the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota for all their efforts and care for Roger. They also would like to thank Elara Caring Hospice for their compassion in the last few weeks.

According to his wishes cremation has taken place and a memorial service has been postponed until the pandemic has passed and it is safe for everyone to gather.
