Roger Lee Sutherburg

1957 – 2017

GARDINER - Roger Lee Sutherburg, 60, of Gardiner, passed away Wednesday April 19, 2017. He went peacefully at home after a courageous battle with cancer. 

Born February 4, 1957, Roger was a lifelong resident of Gardiner, Maine. His friendly nature and infectious laugh enabled him to create lasting relationships in both his personal and professional lives. He was an active member of the community, most notably as a volunteer within local youth sports organizations.

He recently retired from Swisher International, where he very much enjoyed his job and the people that he worked with. 

Roger is survived by his wife Della of 35 years; his son Nathan and wife, Amanda; his son Ryan and wife, Megan; his son Brandon and longtime girlfriend, Amanda; nine grandchildren, Rylee, Taylor, Emma, Logan, Abby, Reese, Noelle, Reid and Sadie; brother, Leon and wife Shelby; brother John and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins, all of whom he cared for deeply.

Roger is preceded in death by his parents, Roderick and Pauline Sutherburg; brother Gary and grandson Landon. 

Roger’s greatest enjoyment in life was spending quality time with family and friends. For that reason, at Roger’s request, there will be no formal ceremony. A private gathering will be held at a later date to celebrate his life.

Arrangements are under the care of Staples Funeral Home 53 Brunswick Ave Gardiner
