He is also survived by brothers Tim (Alliance), Lynn (Minerva), Larry (Streetsboro), Jeff and Todd Edwards (Homeworth).

The family is putting together a celebration of life dinner at the family farm on September 27, 2020 at 2:00pm to celebrate the home going of an awesome guy. He loved having people over to the house and he didn't want any of us to make a big fuss about his departure. We are hoping everyone can come out and enjoy each others company and let's talk about all the crazy things Roger has done in his 67 years of life. We will have all his favorite dishes and all his favorite "big girls" will be there. Food/drink donations are also greatly appreciated and accepted.
