Roger was also an avid cribbage player. Before retiring, Roger worked for Texaco/Coastal for 25 years. He was the beloved husband of 35 years to the late Rita (nee Coughlin); devoted father of William E. Reagan (Denise), Colleen G. Baker (Luis Marquez), Cynthia A. Klauder (Jim), Virginia L. "Ginny" Finegan, Priscilla M. Finegan and Martha J. Baker (Ralph); loving brother to Sally Parsons (Ronnie) John Finegan and Kenneth Finegan (Mary); loving pop-pop to 10 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren, and uncle to numerous nieces and nephews.
