Roger was born June 29th, 1951. He was the son of Roger Rix (Rixie) Kueckelhan and Carol Marie Harris- Kueckelhan. He graduated from Laura Speed Elliott in 1969. He married Nancy June Drechsel on March 20th, 1971, at the United Church of Christ in Boonville, MO. They resided in Lamine, MO their entire marriage of 52 years.

Roger was adamant to continue his parents legacy and keep the family farms going. He spent his life farming, raising cattle, custom hay baling, cattle hauling, working for Geiger Gas, and also working for Farm and Home, delivering propane. He loved to garden and tending to his flowers. Most of all he loved being a papa, dad, and husband. He loved teaching his girls and grandchildren how to operate farm equipment, mow yards, haul hay, and how to love life and work hard for what you want in life. He had a beautiful heart and soul and would give you the shirt off of his back if you needed it. He never wanted anyone to be alone during the holidays, and he and his girls would take meals to those in the neighborhood, that had no family. He opened his home to everyone and welcomed his daughter’s friends into his home like they were his own.

Roger was preceded in death by his parents, Roger Rix (Rixie) & Carole Marie Harris-Kueckelhan of Lamine, MO., grandparents, Robert Parker & Rowena Lea Smith-Harris, of Lamine, MO., and grandparents, Robert Kelley & Ruth Kueckelhan of Lamine, MO.

He is survived by his wife Nancy, of the home, daughters; Shelley (Shane) Jennings of Franklin, MO., Stacia (Chris) Gerrish of Columbia, MO., and Shauna (Shawn) Bohlken of Boonville, MO. Grandchildren; Addyelin Marie Gerrish, CannaRassa June Jennings, Khale Parker Bohlken, Casten Erye Rix Jennings, Mikayla Eva Marie Bohlken, Caden Monroe Gerrish, Kelsie Brooke Jennings-Martin (Cameron), and great-grandchild; Wesley Creed Martin. Brothers; Lynn (Sherrie) Kueckelhan of Columbia, MO., and Keith (Patricia) Kueckelhan of Boonville, MO., and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

He was such huge part of the little town of Lamine. He was one of a kind and will be missed dearly.  Driving thru Lamine won’t be the same without Roger. To his three girls and grandchildren, he was the greatest man that ever lived.
