Roger Earl Wade
1934 – 2021
Our family is deeply saddened by the loss of our dad, g-pa, friend, brother, and uncle, Roger Earl Wade. Roger returned to our Heavenly Father on August 28, 2021, dancing into his wife’s arms.
Roger was born on May 4, 1934 in Ogden, Utah the son of Earl C. and Emma Wade. Roger was the oldest of four children. Roger had unbelievable work ethic, and anyone that worked with him would agree. He learned this work ethic working side-by-side helping his dad, who was a general contractor. He attended Ogden schools and graduated from Ogden High School. He graduated from Weber College and then later attended Utah State University where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering.
Roger served in the United States Army in the Korean War. He finished at the top of his class while at Fort Ord, California. Roger met the love of his life Clydene Green at Utah State University and they were married on July 20, 1962 in the Logan Utah temple. The two lived in Ogden, Utah and later moved to Roy, Utah. Roger and Clydene were blessed with five children Keri, Kami, Kim, Scott, and Kathi.
Roger worked for Hercules Incorporated for 30 years as an Engineer. Roger was a dedicated member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many capacities including as a missionary at the Ogden Canary for 15 years, as well as a temple worker at the Ogden Utah Temple.
Roger loved to travel including many trips to the beach, cruises, Australia, Fiji, Disney parks, Hawaii, the Caribbean, Mexico, and many other places and adventures. Many have been blessed by his example and acts of love and kindness. He will be greatly missed, until we meet again.
Roger was preceded in death by his wife (Clydene), his parents, Clydene’s parents (Clyde and Neoma Green), brother (Steve), and in-laws (David & Lorna Chugg).
Roger is survived by his children: Keri (Jeff) Holley, Kami Bill, Kim (Aaron) Hall, Scott (Jennifer) Wade & Kathi (Justin) Jensen, his siblings; Sharon (Jared) Crowley, Monette O’Keefe, sister-in-law; Connie (Wade) Blakeley, 16 grandchildren; 4 great-grandchildren, and he was excited to welcome his 5th great-grandchild in November.
