Roger was born May 6th, 1939 in Sleepy Eye, MN to parents Dorothy (Anderson) and Allen Frederiksen. From his youth, Roger recounted memories from his parents’ farm; enjoying harvest seasons, helping his Mother with gardening and being around livestock. In the summer he enjoyed potluck gatherings with neighbors and staying with cousins who would debate about cars and tractors.

After graduating from Cosmos (MN) High School in 1957, Roger obtained a bachelor's degree from the University of Minnesota. Roger enlisted in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War from 1961 to 1965. He married Phyllis Brunswold in 1967 and together they raised two sons over the course of their 52-year marriage. Roger enjoyed traveling with his family, taking them on many road trips to National Parks across the U.S. and Canada. He also enjoyed movies, Minnesota Twins baseball, card games and dad jokes. Roger was a loyal man with a gentle spirit and a servant's heart.

Roger is survived by wife, Phyllis and sons, Mark (Kate) and Scott (Sophie). He is also survived by grandchildren, Molly, Nathan and Bria, and his sister, June (Bud) Olson and brother, Don (Joan Scipior) Frederiksen.
