Roger Westring Obituary

Roger Leroy Westring, known affectionately as Roger to his friends and loved ones, passed away peacefully on March 10, 2024, in Dothan, Alabama. Born on September 16, 1940, in Madison, Wisconsin, Roger's life was defined by his unwavering spirit, kindness, and deep-seated faith.

Roger's journey began as the son of Paul R. and Irma Peak Westring, and he grew up surrounded by the love and support of his family. He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Doris E. Hofmeister. Roger's early years in Madison laid a strong foundation for a life characterized by service and dedication. His commitment to his country was evident when he joined the US Army, serving as a Paratrooper, a role that would come to shape much of his ethos in the years that followed.

After his military service, Roger entered the auction business, where he worked with Deanco Auctions, delivering cars and equipment to buyers. His hands were rarely still, as he found joy in scrapping and welding, creating and mending with the same care and attention he gave to all aspects of his life.

Roger's personal interests reflected his caring, dependable, and independent nature. He had a particular fondness for the simpler pleasures of life, like lying on the couch and immersing himself in the world of 1970s television shows, which remained his favorite. Despite his strong and sweet demeanor—a testament to his character—he was most comfortable showing his love through actions rather than words.

A man of faith, Roger was a devoted member of Ridgecrest Baptist Church, where he dedicated himself to his beliefs and community. His faith was a cornerstone of his existence, guiding him through life's many trials and triumphs. Those who knew Roger would describe him as faith-filled and spirited, a man who navigated life's journey with a kind heart and a steadfast spirit.

In his personal life, Roger was a loving and devoted husband to his wife of 14 years, Rosemarie Westring. Their bond was one of mutual respect, deep affection, and unwavering support. Rosemarie cherished Roger deeply, and their years together were filled with shared moments of joy and companionship.

Roger's legacy is carried on by his beloved wife, Rosemarie, his sister, Pauline (Frank) Yanez, and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends who were touched by his generosity, humor, and warmth. Each person who knew Roger felt the impact of his kind spirit, and he will be dearly missed by all.

As we bid farewell to Roger Leroy Westring, we reflect on a life well-lived, marked by the love he gave and the grace with which he moved through the world. His memory will continue to inspire and guide us, a beacon of the spirited and kind man he was. May he rest in peace, and may his spirit continue to shine brightly in the hearts of those he loved.
