Roger Earl Vogt

January 13, 1955 — November 15, 2020

Roger E. Vogt, 65 of Millstadt, IL passed away on Sunday November 15, 2020 at Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, MO. Born on January 13, 1955 in Belleville, IL he was the son of Ralph and Florence Vogt, nee Scharf and they precede him in death.

Roger worked for the Golden Dipt Company of Millstadt, IL for 37 years and was a member of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union. He was also a member of the Millstadt Union Fire Department and served as district chief for 10 years. Roger worked as a car detailer at Mertz Ford in Millstadt, IL prior to retirement. Roger was also a member of Concordia UCC Church. In his spare time, he loved to go antiquing or “junking” with his beloved wife, Joy. Roger and Joy were known throughout the area for their stunning flower garden that attracted visitors to their home, and this was a labor of love for him. Roger looked forward to helping his brothers on the family farm every year, an activity that kept him in tune with farming. On nice days or beautiful evenings, he often enjoyed taking relaxing country drives with Joy. Roger was a devoted animal lover and had the pleasure of owning several dogs throughout his life.
