Among the many lessons Roger consistently demonstrated in our time together was this: love and be faithful to your wife, support, care for and adore your children, cherish your family and be an honest and admirable man. Live life to the fullest and cherish every moment and always remember, we must have a great sense of humor, as we all know Roger certainly did! This specialness that Roger bestowed upon all of us was especially passed down to his daughter, Joanna. Their bond together was inseparable. She was his whole life. They just loved to hunt and fish together and Roger excelled at target shooting as well. He loved to cook especially around the holidays which were some of his favorite times.
Roger is going to be forever missed by his surviving family members, beloved wife of over 47 years, Joanne; his daughter and best friend, Joanna Sweeney and her fiancé, John Citrin, of Utica; his brother and sister-in-law, Harold Jablonski “Butch” and his wife, Judy, of Florida; his sister and brother-in-law, Judy LeClair and her husband, Tim, of Clockville, New York; several nieces and nephews; and a very dear friend, David Skramko “Skrammy”. Roger is also survived by his In-Laws within The Guido Family.
