On Thursday, March 15, 2018, Roger Allen Reese, husband, father, papou, son, and brother, passed away suddenly just before his 56th birthday. Allen will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 26 years, Dorrie; father and best friend Roger (Carolyn); mother, Gail; son, Jeff (Olga); step-daughters, Mandy (Casey) and Shannon (Adam); grandsons, Brinten, Ethan, Blake and Camden; brothers, Aaron (Sandy), Donovan (Ruthie) and Jason; and sister, Bonnie.
Allen was a kind man who always put everyone before himself. He was the first to offer help to anyone in need. Allen was a skilled craftsman and kept his hands busy - he could fix anything. He cherished his wife and lifelong partner, Dorrie and loved her daughters as if they were his own. Being Papou and playing with his grandchildren brought him the greatest joy. He liked fishing, playing with his guns, and riding his four-wheeler with his dad. Earlier in life, he enjoyed building model airplanes and flying them with his son. Mr. Mule was his favorite and most reliable friend when he was doing his chores. Allen loved motorcycle racing and spending time at the racetrack where he helped his brother and many of his friends as their pit crew.
Preceded in death by his brother and best friend Andy (Lori).
Allen's celebration of life will be held at a future date to be announced.
