Melisa and Roger's Wedding

Roger Patterson

Roger Paul Patterson, age 28, passed away May 17, 2013, in the arms of his wife, surrounded by family and close friends after his long battle with cancer.

He is survived by his wife Melisa (Davies) Patterson, parents Fred and Arlene (Diemert) Patterson, brother Riley, sisters Carrie and Julie, grandparents Roger and Ruth Diemert, in-laws Robert and Lori Davies, brother-in-law Michael and nephew Ezequiel, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Roger was born in Redmond, to Fred and Arlene on June 20, 1984, grew up in North Bend with a passion for playing soccer, and graduated from Mount Si High School in 2002. Roger began working at Sargent Construction Services in 2006 with great pride as a carpenter and lead glazier.

After five years together, Roger married the love of his life Melisa on July 25, 2009, in a beautiful backyard ceremony in Issaquah. Roger was a diehard Seahawks fan, enjoyed rock-and-roll music, jamming on his guitar, goofing around with his best buddies/brothers, and he never ceased to make others laugh. Roger was wise beyond his years, continuously maintained an extremely courageous and positive attitude, and spread copious amounts of love and joy with his infectious smile.

A memorial service will be held Saturday June 29, 2013, at 2 p.m. at Bybee Nims Farm in Snoqualmie.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Seattle Children’s or Seattle Cancer Care Alliance/Fred Hutchinson Research Center.
