Roger was born in Flint, on April 5, 1962, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Douglas and Barbara (Neuman) Carpenter. Educated locally, Roger graduated from Hamady High School with the Class of 1980. Roger worked for Meijer for over 25 years. To say he liked being outdoors would be an understatement. Roger enjoyed fishing in Oscoda on the Au Sable River and camping at the local campground. He also pan fished locally. Roger enjoyed hunting Up North in Iosco County and in his backyard. He enjoyed boating and would go out on his fishing boat or his brother’s speedboat. He loved being on the water. Roger also went up to Tustin snowmobiling every weekend when he was younger and wherever he could locally too. Morell mushroom hunting was one of his favorite pastimes and he would go anywhere he could find them.
Roger is survived by his son, Anthony Carpenter; daughter, Ashley Carpenter and husband, Avik Bhattacharya; mother, Barbara Carpenter; siblings: Mark and wife, Janice Carpenter, Janice and husband, Wayne Meyer, Julie and husband, Don Guzniczac; several nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.
