Roger L. Iverson 53, of Arlee MT passed away on March 15, 2017.
Roger was one of seven children, born to Anna Brotzman (Lesieur) and Donald Iverson on February 11, 1964 in Kimball, Nebraska. When he was a young boy they moved to the small town of Arlee, Montana. He graduated from Two Eagle River School in 1982. After graduation Roger proudly served as a member of The United States Navy as an Egress Technician. After the military, he became a jack of all trades and did many things from logging, to carpentry, to becoming a long-haul trucker for the last 20 years. Roger decided to go back to school in 2004 for a degree in Automotive Technology. He graduated as Valedictorian of his class with a degree in Automotive Technology from Miles Community College in 2006. He attended an additional year of Diesel Automotive at MSU Billings after graduating from MCC on a full scholarship for winning the Humanitarian award. When he wasn’t busy working, he enjoyed riding motorcycles, tinkering on his classic cars, helping others, spending time with his family and being outdoors.
Roger did many things that he was proud of in his short life, but his proudest moments came from being a father, uncle, brother, and son. He loved his family more than can be put into words. From his perfect Donald Duck impersonation to starting a story with his infamous “Boy, I’ll tell you what…” he was ready to laugh and wanted to make those around him laugh with him. He never forgot to tell you how proud of you he was, and how much he loved you. He adored his children and would move mountains to make sure they were happy and healthy.
He is survived by his wife Brenna, children Sean, Kacee, Ali, Cheyenne, Brielle (Honey Butt), Little Roger (Dude), and Maximus (Maco). Other survivors include his mother Anna, mother-in-law Paige, father-in-law Dave, siblings, Cherie, Brenda, Donny, Darrol, Steve, Buck, brother-in-law Davy and honorary brother Buddy. His nephews Lawrence, Duane and Dylan and nieces Ershaunda and Ashlee as well as his grandkids and many more.
Roger was one in a million with a heart of gold. He is loved and missed dearly. Memorial services will be held on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. at Stevenson & Sons Funeral Home in Miles City. Interment will follow in the Eastern Montana State Veteran’s Cemetery with full military honors. Stevenson & Sons Funeral Home of Miles City is in charge of the arrangements.
