Roger was born on September 20, 1940 at Cunningham Hospital in Platteville, Wisconsin, the son of T.L. and Marion (McNett) Sedgwick. He was united in marriage to Carol Jean Crapp on August 22, 1964 at Davies Memorial United Church of Christ, Potosi. Together Roger and Carol owned and operated Sedgwick Plumbing and Heating, Potosi for 30 plus years. They later owned and operated Sedgwick Realty until the present. Roger was a member of First English Lutheran Church, Platteville, where he served on the church council for a number of years. A lifetime of commitment and dedication to serving his community and looking out for others was inherent in who he was. As a result, he served on the Potosi Village Board, and was a volunteer fireman for 25 years on the Potosi Volunteer Fire Department.

He enjoyed antiques and collectibles, family heirlooms, clocks, pocket watches, John Deere collectibles, Potosi Brewery Memorabilia and classic cars, trucks, and tractors which he enjoyed displaying in local parades and shows.
