Roger Lee Strawser, 68, of Eglon, WV, died from a farming accident on October 21, 2021. He was born January 18, 1953 in Oakland, MD, a son of the late Glen Dorman and Helen May (Paugh) Strawser.
After graduating Aurora High School, Roger began working for Peters Fuel in Elkins where he was a truck driver. Following his truck driving days, he worked for Fints Stone Company and then made a 44-year career out of being a coal miner, working for Buffalo and Arch Coal Companies where he was also a certified welder and electrician. Retiring from the mines in August of 2018, Roger never gave up his passion for working on the farm. He loved spending time with his family and he never met a stranger.
