Lifelong Goodland resident Roger John Studer, age 69, passed away on January 15, 2023. Roger was born on August 5, 1953 in Goodland to Hubert and Evelyn (Peterson) Studer. He graduated from Goodland High School with the class of 1972. On August 25, 1973 he married Carmen Barnett at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church in Goodland. They had 3 children John, Lisa and Sara. They would have celebrated their 50th anniversary this August.
Roger worked at Herl’s Chevrolet during High School through the DECA program. After High School, he went to work at Sam’s Conoco, Big A, Classi Grocery in Brewster, Fixsen’s Electronics, Finley Motors, and then worked 23 years at the Goodland Sheriff’s department. Roger started out as a dispatcher for Sheriff Jack Armstrong, then became Sheriff Deputy under the late Sheriff Doug Whitson, and Under Sheriff for Sheriff Kevin Butts. Roger was also a Sherman County Rural Firefighter for 18 years. He really missed helping people when he retired.
Roger had many health issues over the years, but he never let them get him down for long. His grandkids were his pride and joy! He enjoyed fishing and the races with his grandson Layton, and he would sit and jam out to music with his granddaughter Brailynn. He taught all his grandchildren to love Queen, or at least he tried! He loved doing projects with Satori and Saphire and taking them to Cowboy Corner after school to get a snack. Madi and Roger listened to Fat Bottom Girls and anything by Queen. He was so proud of her!
He was proceeded in death by his parents; infant brother, Lawrence; brother, Randy Studer; grandparents, Henry and Anna Peterson and John and Anna Studer.
