He was a loving and supportive father to his daughter, Wende Charde-St. George, and a shining light to his grandson, Brendan, whom he lovingly called his “monkey butt” for the last five years, and was a devoted, nurturing and influential uncle to his nephew, Marc. Raised in Southington by his loving parents, he graduated from Southington High School and earned a degree in political science from the University of Connecticut where he played ice hockey for the CT Huskies.  Intensely goal-oriented, Roger moved to Florida where he earned a second bachelor’s degree in hospitality management, followed by another bachelor’s degree in accounting from Hodges University in Naples.  He was the owner of a successful CPA firm on Marco Island, FL, was a member of the Florida Institute of Certified Public Accountants and was certified in the state of Georgia, as well as in Florida.
