Born in Spokane, WA (raised in Worland, WY) to Kelvin and Rae Skiles he was an inquisitive and mischievous boy. He excelled in sports at Worland High School and held many records. Roger was fiercely passionate about a wide array of things from the start and dedicated his life to both his family and his friendships. He was employed in the electrical construction arena. His career was kick started after a casual meeting with his friend and mentor, Bob Johnston, a lifelong friend. He was employed by the Intel Corporation for 26 years, a career he was very proud of. In 1991, Roger met his wife, Tina and went on to have two children. Roger put family first, always, and was a dedicated father. His children were the highlight of his life. Roger was a strong, kind, loving, and supportive father and husband. His knowledge and guidance was the foundation of his family.
Roger was also a passionate gun and knife collector and enthusiast. He spent most of his life enjoying that hobby. He also was the very proud owner of his many different motorcycles which he road frequently, his Harley a proud possession. If you ever had the opportunity to watch him dance you knew you were enjoying another of his passions. He was the epitome of a cowboy and many called him that.
