Roger Irish met Kim O’Neill in the fall of 1979, and the two were married July 14, 1983. He had a love of small crafts much like his beloved wife. He mainly enjoyed cross stitch, needle-point, and crocheting baby booties with his free time. Roger especially loved hiking and camping with his family and grandchildren, along with capturing timeless memories with his passion in photography.

Roger had a knack for making those around him laugh with his jokes and puns. He will be remembered by his ability to keep every moment light hearted and fun loving. His smile and mischievous chuckle will be greatly missed.

Roger had a degree in computer science and enjoyed his career field enough to maintain his edge in a quickly developing, technologically driven world. Taking care of and providing for his family was his first priority and he was able to enjoy his work while accomplishing his main goal in life.

Roger is survived by his loving Wife: Kim, Parents: Glen and Effie Irish, Sisters: Rebecca (Mark), Sarah (Jayson); children: Brittney (Sean), Joel (Katie), Justin (Mikelle), Jeremy (Breanne) and his favorite grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his grandparents Ronald & Amy Walker; LeRoy & Viola Irish.
