WILLIAMS, Roger Phillip

Roger went on to graduate from the University of Washington with a degree in Metallurgical Engineering.

Roger married Donna Marie Agostino in 1954.

He served with the United States Military for two years.
While raising four children, his career with Wyman-Gordon, Harvey Aluminum, and Kaiser Aluminum & Chemical took him to California, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and back to California.

In 1990, he relocated back to Spokane where he had spent much of his childhood.

It was here that he began a second career as Chairman and Founder of MacForms, International, his one-man operation specializing in family law judicial forms.

Roger married Elaine C. Jennings in 1998.

She was his rock until the end.
Roger had a wry sense of humor.

He loved his butter, Cougar Gold and stashes of nuts.

He was humorously known as the “king of lamination” and shared his love of movies with the family.
Roger was predeceased by his parents and half brother Mike.
He is survived by his stepmother Marilyn, half sister Wendy (Craig), and half brother Patrick.
He is also survived by his wife, Elaine C. Jennings; children, Marc Alan, Camilla Jean (Ed), Cari Lynn Marie (Richard), and Guy Phillip; grandchildren Catherine, Christian, Evan, and Julia.

He felt blessed to have them in his life.
At Roger’s request there will be no services.
