Roger Wilkes ~ Class of 1972

Departed ~ 2/19/2018

Dear ISB alumni, it is with heartfelt regret that I have to report that Roger Dane Wilks, my husband and fellow classmate of the 1972 graduation class passed away on February 19, 2018 (President’s Day) after battling cardio amyloidosis for over 5 years. The shining star of his existence is recognized by our family, friends and acquaintances.

We are planning a memorial in early summer, 2018 in the DC, MD area to spread his ashes over his favorite fishing spots as per his request. I will post the date/time/location of the celebration of his remarkable life.

I just arrived at out new home in Washington after hearing many Jimmy Buffett, Beatles, Elton John, etc. songs. I know you will miss him tremendously, but please smile at one or more of his memorable humorous remembrances. He would love that. Please upload pictures and other memorabilia of the one-and-only Roger Dane Wilks. I will try to include them in our tribute to our recognition of his brief but meaningful life.
