Remembering  Roger  Dush

Many of you have heard our very sad news and I want to officially share it with you.

With great sorrow, I must tell you my husband of 38 years, Roger Dush, succumbed to the scourge of COVID-19 which so unfairly stole him from us after only five days with the virus and only three days in the hospital.  Gratefully, I was able to be with him in his last hours. He was not only my life, but a great father, grandfather, mentor, and friend to so many people. Roger was kind and gentle with a warm and unforgettable smile and always a twinkle in his eyes.

As Lance, our grandson said. "Grampy lived his life with the most profound sense of generosity and care not only for his family but everyone around him. He never failed to make every single person he met feel respected and valued. His gentle, yet extraordinarily powerful presence as a dedicated teacher, role model, husband, father, and grandfather will always be a light to guide us and a love for us to feel."

Both Roger and I loved growing and selling Christmas trees. Spreading the joy and happiness of the Christmas season are so rewarding, not only for you but for us as well. We at The Farms at Pine Tree Barn will continue this wonderful tradition. Roger lives on in the trees, on the farm, and mostly, in our hearts.

My only wish is to have 38 more years with Roger. He was the love of my life.

 

Sincerely,

Rita
