Roger Allen Hergert
June 26, 1945 - April 23, 2018
Roger Allen Hergert, age 72, was called to our Lord on Monday, April 23, 2018 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Roger was born on June 26, 1945 in Wheatland, Wyoming to Jake and Esther (Willman) Hergert. Growing up, he enjoyed working on the Hergert family farm West of Lingle, Wyoming, where he learned how to build and fix almost anything. He would humbly say that he was a "jack of all trades and master of none".
Roger graduated from Lingle High School in 1963 and attended the University of Wyoming, working multiple jobs with his wife, Nancy, to raise their first two children, Kevin and Kim. He graduated in 1969 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and moved his young family to Minnesota for his first engineering job with Control Data. There, he built his family's first house in the evenings and weekends. The family moved to Georgetown, Texas in 1977 and later to Colorado in 1980, adding sons Kyle and Kody to the family. Roger found success working for computer companies like Texas Instruments, Storage Tech, and Digital Equipment Corp. In 1993, he retired from engineering and opened an RV park and campground in Cripple Creek, Colorado.
Roger loved watching his kids compete in sports, music, theatre, and life. He also enjoyed playing golf, shooting pool, and loved to polka dance along with other types of dances or reunions with family and friends.
Roger married his one love, Nancy (Keller) Hergert on July 21, 1963. They were married for thirty years before she passed away in 1993. He loved Nancy dearly, and would admit that he never recovered after her passing. Roger was also preceded in death by his mother; father; and brother.
He is survived by his three sons, Kevin (Anne), Kyle (April), and Kody (Adrienne); his daughter, Kim (Karl); and a sister, Lynnea (Jerry) Fullmer. Roger had five grandchildren that he was extremely proud of, Shawn, Jacob, Conner, Ainsley, and Brynley; and his step-grandchildren, Matthew (Carrie), Nathan (Terri), and Michael (Pam).
