Roger S. Wilkins

December 5, 1962 — May 18, 2023

Roger Stanley Wilkins, Jr. ,60, passed away on May 18, 2023 at his home in Peculiar, Missouri.
Roger was born to Roger Stanley Wilkins and Barbara Lou (Caulfield) Wilkins on December 5,
1962 in Kansas City, Missouri. Growing up, Roger worked with his father who owned a service
station in Kansas City. He attended St. Regis and O’Hara’ High School, where he was a member
of the 1980 state championship football team. After graduating high school, he spent 2 years as
a member of the United States Army before being honorably discharged. When he returned
from the army, he again went to work with his father at Wilkins and Son’s, a lawn irrigation
business for several years before going to work for Siler Lawn and Garden. Roger married Lisa
Ising on June 13, 1986. Together, they raised three children – Sam, Ali and Loren. In 1993, Roger
started Wilkins Lawn & Irrigation, a business he operated until his passing. He took great pride
in his work and enjoyed being able to operate a successful small business taking care of his
customers. In 1997, the family moved from Kansas City to Peculiar, Missouri.
He was preceded in death by his parents Roger and Barbara Wilkins, his father-in-law Jack Ising,
mother-in-law Connie Ising, and brothers-in-law Rick and Gary Ising. He is survived by his wife
