Roger was born on October 31, 1961, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He was a proud graduate of Stapleton Public High School with the Class of 1980. Roger went on to study diesel mechanics in college but ultimately ended up working at a shop that specialized in foreign cars out of school.

Throughout his life, Roger was a dedicated workaholic who loved his family dearly. His grandchildren and children were his greatest joy, followed by his passion for his motorcycles. Roger had a terrific sense of humor and was known to be sarcastic from time to time. He was also known for his strong work ethic and exceptional mechanical skills, working for Goodyear, Humphries Auto, and T.O. Haas. He ended his career at Humphries, having made many wonderful friends and acquaintances over the years. Roger was always eager to help others.

Roger was preceded in death by his mother, LaDonna Cook; his wife, Linda Cook; and an infant baby sister.

Roger is survived by his father, Rich Cook; two daughters, Shanandoah (Tim) Scott and Breanna Cook and significant other Tyson Courter; three sons, Trevor (Naomi) Cook, Damon, and Brendin; sister, Suzette Casillas; several grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who will cherish his memory.
