Roger Lynn Strom passed peacefully on January 5th, 2021 in Salt Lake City, Utah from an unexpected, catastrophic, brain hemorrhage. In his last moments he was comforted by his wife and kids, listening to their favorite love songs. Born on October 12, 1955 in Chadron, NE, he was the youngest son to Betty Tarquis (Strom) and Dale Strom. He grew up in Chadron and graduated from Chadron High School in 1974. He married his first wife, Deana, and they welcomed their son, Randy. Years later he divorced Deana, but his love story did not end. He moved to Casper from Nebraska and met Susie Litzinger. He remarried in 1989. Roger and Susie then had three wonderful daughters, Nickole, Samantha, and Alexis. They lived their many happy years in Casper, Wyoming,
He spent his 45 year career selling industrial electrical supplies working for various companies - Roberts Electric (Chadron, NE), Modern Electric (Casper, WY), Zimmerman Electric (Scottsbluff, NE), Ryall/Rexel (Casper, WY). He retired in July of 2019, but met and developed many friendships in his time traveling the state of Wyoming. Roger was a great provider for his family and spent many weekends next to a football field, wrestling mat, track, or volleyball court. He loved spending time with his family at the lake, reading books, working in the yard, watching a good movie, having backyard beers or driveway drinks with his “drinking problems - Nick, Sam, and Lex.” Roger sought to give his family his time and his best self. He was a loving son, brother, husband, father, uncle, grandpa, friend and Dude to many. He will be missed and never forgotten.
He is preceded in death by his parents, his father in law, and brother in law. Roger is survived by his wife and forever love, Susie; his son, Randy (Hilary), of Gering, Nebraska; his daughter, Nickole, of Casper; his daughter, Sammi, of Casper; and his daughter, Lexi (Trent), of Casper; his grandchildren, Emma, Ella, and Evan, of Gering, NE; and grandson, Austin/Little Dude, of Casper.
