Roger Michael Danik

May 7, 2002 ~ October 13, 2020 (age 18)


Roger was born on May 7, 2020 and left us on October 13th, 2020.

A celebration of Roger's life will be held at Richardson Funeral Home on Sunday November 1, 2020 at 11am.

He is survived by his parents Andrew and Beth Danik, siblings Edyth and Joseph, and many more who loved him dearly.


"Roger had a busy mind and a full heart; sometimes it was overwhelming."

"I miss him and I wish he would accept me as a friend."


"Roger was very friendly; he would strike up conversations with strangers and consider them friends.

He had a curious mind that often led to unexpected results.

Fun to be with and a hart worker, he would spend time making Easter eggs with his Grammy L.

He laughed easy and saw the funny sides others often missed."

"He was always the life of the party. You could never stop laughing when he was around."

"Irresistible laughter."


"My 3 year old Roger always wanted to tell his Nugget, One More Thing, before he went to sleep.

He was my precious boy."

"You left our tour group to explore unafraid the towns we visited in Germany on your own.

Now you're exploring places of exquisite beauty filled with the love your empty heart craved.

I rejoice knowing I'll join you there soon."

"Brave, brash, full of heart.

You always got back up, no matter how hard you were knocked down, even when you knocked yourself down.

We fought but we always made up afterward."


"Roger has a heart of gold; he is always helping and giving to others."

"Your life has been a series of ironic instances in which I wanted to disagree, but actually felt the same. 

The wrong resonated with right, profoundly so at times.

I am sorry for the ways I failed you, and mourn that I can’t tell you today that we know each other."

"Roger, we never really got to say “Hello” before you said “Goodbye”."
