Some moments come and go in a blink of an eye. However, some are remembered forever. The moment has finally come upon us for Roger Glenn Faidley. His candle blew out May 5, 2013. He is survived by his 3 siblings, his wife of over 40 years, 3 children, 8 grandchildren, and 6 great-grandchildren.
Roger grew up in Colfax, Iowa and had the privilege of traveling the whole United States of America multiple times. His final destination landed him in Washington state where he enjoyed his freedome to the max.
Roger joined the United States Air Force July 5, 1965 and after completing his tour of duty returned home to Colfax, Iowa. He saw his life as a journey and one worth exploring. The Blues, trade fairs, family, road trips, and sticking out his thumb were a way of living life to the fullest for him. There was a glow in his beautiful, blue eyes and fight in his will to always move forward.
Roger will join his Mom, Mary Bell Faidley, and his Father, Ken Glenn Faidley in Heaven. He leaves behind many untold stories and another joke left unsaid.
