Roger W. Beaber Jr.

Roger William Beaber Jr., of Mountain, passed away on Feb. 1, 2024, after a 2½-year courageous battle with skin cancer. He was under the care of his family and Unity Hospice.

Roger was born Sept. 17, 1949, in Marinette, to the late Roger Sr. and Hildegaard (Odorfer) Beaber. He was united in marriage to Linda (Sells) on July 15, 1972, in New London.

Roger was a graduate of Gillett High School in Gillett. When it came time to choose a career, he followed in his father’s footsteps as a contractor. He had a successful building career, owning and operating first Tricraft Construction and then Beaber Construction. Beaber Construction is still in operation under the ownership of his eldest son, Ryan. His middle son, Troy, works alongside his brother, continuing to build the family business.

Roger and Linda spent several years in South Dakota where he could enjoy all his favorite hobbies. He loved hunting, fishing and being outdoors. He was also a talented woodworker. He treasured time spent with his children and grandchildren doing the things they enjoyed, even gaming on Xbox.

Roger attended Rose Hill Evangelical Free Church in South Dakota and several churches in the surrounding Mountain area. He lived out his Christian faith by serving others. He was a member of The Oconto River Kids Program, which provides critically ill children hunting and fishing opportunities. He was also very active with Faith in Action where he used his building talents on many mission trips, building for missionaries around the world. Roger also served on the WRVM radio board and worked with Gideons International.

In addition to his wife, Linda, Roger is survived by sons, Ryan Beaber (significant other Sarah Tarlton) and Troy (Jana) Beaber, of Lily; daughter, Kelly Beaber (Ethan Smith); grandchildren, Tate, Seth, Wyat, Kelsey, Kiana, Kyra and Kashton; brother, Christopher (Missy) Beaber; sisters, Heidi (Virgil) Rakowski, Joan Moses, Darlene (Scott) Schmeckpeper, Rita Beaber, Amanda “Mandy” (Bill) Bohn; and stepmother, Theresa Beaber.

A memorial service for Roger will be held at a later date.
