Roger Metcalf was born on June 20, 1937 in Iowa to Howard and Marguerite Metcalf and was a resident of the Whiting-Robertsdale Community for the past 25 years. He was a US Navy veteran, a retiree of Ironworkers Local 1 of Chicago and a member of the Roosevelt Club, Whiting. Roger loved to shoot billiards, spending time with friends (especially if he could make them laugh!) but above all he cherished the time he spent with his grandchildren. Devoted to his family, Roger will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him. In lieu of flowers, memorials to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
