In memory of
Roger Dale Keller
Roger Dale Keller November 19, 1949 - January 10, 2017 Sherman Oaks Roger Dale Keller (age 67), died January 10, 2017, at his home in Sherman Oaks, Ca. The cause was complications from cancer. Born November 19, 1949, in Lindsay, CA, he was the son of the late Jesse and Sherman Keller. A 1968 graduate of Mt. Whitney High School in Visalia, Mr. Keller went on to earn both a bachelor's degree in theater and a teaching credential from California State University, Fresno. He worked for 29 years in the Woodland Hills office of Polk, Scheer & Raphael, but his first love was the theater. He was an original member of the Good Company Players dinner theater in Fresno. His professional credits include appearances on the popular TV shows "Cheers" and "Frasier," as well as numerous stage roles. He was a member of Actors' Equity and SAG-AFTRA. Mr. Keller was an avid film fan, and he also attended as many plays as he could. He loved electronic "toys," owning and mastering many of the latest gadgets. He also loved to travel and did so many times with an extended group of close, loving friends. They supported him through his illness and were by his side during multiple hospitalizations. All cite his joie de vivre and irreverent sense of humor as what they will miss most. He is survived by his sister and her husband, Karen and Gerald Madrigal of Visalia, as well as many aunts, cousins, nieces, and nephews, including: Patti and Tommy Spadafore, and Sandra Spevak of Los Banos; Robbyn Arzie of Redding; Denise Rogers and Bev Rogers of Hollister; Douglas, Sandi and Shane Berkley of Clovis; Ryan, Heather and Samantha Davolt, Dylan Barker, and Carey Davolt, also of Clovis; Shauna Berkley of Idaho; Robert Bryant of Oregon; Mark and Eddi Keller of Ohio; Francis Boetcher of Ohio; Travis Moorman and Tyler Davolt of Oregon; and Kyleigh Moorman of Texas. He is also survived by his ex-wife, the former Melinda Wakefield, with whom he maintained a close friendship. Mr. Keller was cremated; no services are planned at this time. The family suggests memorial donations to the American Cancer Society.
