Roger Walter Scheiblein of West Chicago, passed away peacefully in his sleep at home surrounded by his family and loyal dog companions Chewy, Walley, and Ruby on December 30, 2023. He was born in Bellwood, Illinois, to Walter and Ella Scheiblein.

Roger was a proud member of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150 for 63 years. He was also a successful business owner, running Rogers and Sons Excavating for over 25 years.

Roger enjoyed boating, snowmobiling, and traveling. Active to the end, he could be found either traveling with his family or at a school or sporting event for one of his many grandchildren or great-grandchildren. Ever the quintessential grandpa, Roger enjoyed spoiling his grandkids from going out for a little nibble, buying go-karts, traveling with them, and even supporting a racing team at Sycamore Speedway.

Roger was a presence everywhere he went and a friend to everyone he met. He will be forever missed by his friends and family.

Roger is survived by his children, Mary of Hebron, Lynn of Bartlett, Dianne of West Chicago, Susan of West Chicago, Mike of Saint Charles, Melissa of West Chicago, his 12 grandchildren, Josh (Melissa), Rusty (Val), Nick (Ryan), Stephanie, Sam (Megan), Allison, Olivia, Gena, Michael, Ryan, Katie, Ella; his 10 great-grandchildren Tiffany, Ethan, Stephen, Austin, Drew, Gianna, Madison, Sophia, Scarlett, and Jasper, and his grandpups Buster, Ocean, Jade, Biscuit, and Casper. He is also survived by his sister Shirley Niblick and several nieces and nephews. Roger was preceded in death by his parents, his beloved wife Evonne (Stimac), who put up with him for 59 years, his son-in-law Russ Schmidt (Mary), and his sister, Judy LaRosa.
