Roger Ehlers, 71, of Valparaiso passed away Wednesday, July 6, 2016 at home. He was born May 5, 1945 in Harvey, IL to Lloyd & Jean (Rolles) Ehlers and proudly served with the U.S. Army in Vietnam.  Roger made his career as a Service Technician with Schneider Trucking. The time he enjoyed tending his garden, fishing, watching NASCAR and nurturing long friendships with neighbors offered consolation for many frustrating years spent as a Cubs and Bears fan.  On June 15, 1979 he married Naomi “Toni” Tambourine who survives along with children: Albert R. Ehlers, Jr. of Valparaiso, Lucille Jenkins of Kouts, Stacy (Curtis) Serles of Kouts, Tara Bowlin of Maryland, Donald Blatz of Shoals, IN, Ronald (Tami) Blatz of Valparaiso, Kristin (Mike) Moon of Valparaiso, siblings, Richard Ehlers of Pennsylvania, Clayton (Donna) Ehlers of Virginia, Paul Ehlers, Patricia (Louis) Werner, Marcella (Tom) Thompson, all of Valparaiso, his beloved grandchildren: Crystal, Tiffany, Ashley, Katie, Sarah, Dustin, Ryan, Devin, Hannah, Alexis, Jaiden, Amy, Phillip & Jeffrey and adorable great grandchildren: Vincent, Bradley, Aubree, Ella, Sylvia, Audrey & Brantley. He was preceded in death by his parents, sister, Carol & brother, Wayne.
Following cremation at Angelcrest Crematory a celebration of life will be held on Sunday, August 14th beginning at 2:00 pm at the Valparaiso Eagles Lodge, 805 Elm Street.
