Roger Edward Nettz was born on January 14, 1940, in Lewis, Iowa, the son of Chester and Bertha (Knapp) Nettz. He grew up in Lewis and attended Lewis High School, graduating in the Class of 1957.

On October 9, 1976, he was united in marriage to Louise Mansson, and the couple settled on a farm, near Casey, Iowa. Roger was a Superintendent at Gus Construction Company for nearly 33 years. With his long career in construction he became very interested in the equipment they used, past and present, and had a large collection of models. In addition to collecting Roger was also on the board of the Historical Construction Equipment Association.

Roger and Louise visited her family in Sweden several times, and also enjoyed traveling within the United States. He was a longtime member of the Atlantic Elks Lodge #445, VASA Omaha Lodge #330, and the American Scandinavian Organization in Des Moines. Two months, prior to Roger’s passing he lost his beloved dog, Lucy whom he missed dearly.

Roger is survived by his wife of 42 years, Louise; Louise’s family in Sweden including sister-in-law, Vivi-Anne Niklasson and her husband, Ove, brother-in-law, Owe Nilsson; nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews, Lars Niklasson and his wife, Louise and their daughters, Viktoria and Julia, Erik Niklasson, Caroline Gyllenbreider and her husband, Anders and their son, Andre; and many friends.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Chester and Bertha Nettz; three-year-old son, Patrick Nettz; brother, Richard Nettz; and sister-in-law, Birgitta Nilsson.

He will be missed!
