He grew up in Gothenburg, where he attended Gothenburg Public Schools and he enjoyed playing football with his friends.

While he was staying in Lincoln with Samantha and Ryker they enjoyed going to rodeos, grilling, going to concerts, and teaching Ryker how to ride a bike.

In Rodger’s spare time he loved hanging out with friends, going fishing, always enjoyed spending time with family, going to sweat lodges, watching his brother Mike drive stock car and every now and then having a beer with his brother Kevin. Due to some health issues Rodger wanted to spend each day to the fullest and his last few weeks he enjoyed watching fireworks, going camping, having fire pits, and enjoyed laughs with his family and friends.

Rodger wants to encourage everyone to be kind and always help one another, to let go of hard feelings and love each other. Most of all keep your faith in our Lord. Romans 12:20.
