Roger Albert Kack was born October 16, 1939 to William and Cecilia (Weber) Kack in St. Leo, Minnesota. He spent much of his childhood living with his siblings after his parent’s death. He entered the Army in 1957 and was honorably discharged in 1959. Roger was united in matrimony to Rosella Josephson and raised five children in Montevideo, Minnesota. He later moved to Longmont, Colorado in 1981 where he met and married Charlotte Olmstad. They resided there until Charlotte’s passing.
Roger was a veteran, master plumber, fireman, milkman, gas company owner and all-around great guy and friend to many. He enjoyed riding his Harley motorcycle, coordinating annual Cripple Creek trips, hunting on the western slopes, fishing, spending time with his friends at the Elks and VFW, and watching his Vikings. He moved back to Montevideo in 2019 for his retirement to be with his kids, siblings, and friends. After a short illness, he passed away just shy of his 80th birthday.
