He was born October 30, 1950, in Arkansas City, KS to Theodore and Alma (Price) Berens. He attended school through 6th grade in Arkansas City when the family moved to California. They then moved to Oregon and back to Campbell, California, where Roger graduated from Campbell High School in 1968. He attended college in Campbell before moving to Springfield, OR.

In 1987 they moved to Belfair, WA to help take care of her dad, and in 1991 moved to Grapeview where they have resided for 31 years.

Roger loved to dote on his grandchildren, they were the loves of his life.
