Roger Child

October 30, 1932 — April 9, 2021

Roger William Child, 88, passed away peacefully on April 9th, 2021 at John Knox Village of Weslaco. Roger was born on October 30th, 1932 in Long Beach, California to Robert and Katherine Child. Roger attended Cal Poly University at San Louis Obispo, California, and received his master's degree at Thunderbird College in Glendale, Arizona.

Roger’s first love was horses and he traveled throughout the southwest alongside his father competing in equestrian events. Roger met his bride-to-be, Luz “Chuza” while vacationing in South America. After moving his family to Texas, Roger became an avid fisherman, enjoying many happy hours at South Padre Island.

Roger is survived by Chuza, his wife of 63 years, his son, Andy, and his wife, Diane, his daughter, Maria, and her husband, Craig, his son, Richard, and his wife, Mary, and grandchildren, Brian(Kristina), Kevin, and Jason Child, Eric and Justin(Katherine) Ferley, and Tanner and Chase Evans.

In consideration of the health of our friends and family, a memorial service will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations may be made to The Coastal Conservation Association of Texas at 6919 Portwest Dr., Ste 100
