Roger Keith Dalen

June 6, 1943 — September 1, 2021

Roger Keith Dalen of Green Cove Springs, FL, went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, September 1, 2021, at the age of 78. Roger passed away after battling Covid-19 for several weeks.

Roger was born on June 6, 1943, in Minot, ND, in the middle of a snow blizzard, to father Maurice F. Dalen and mother Beatrice Skogen Dalen. Roger was the youngest of five children, and was raised in Parshall, ND and Sawyer, ND, before settling in Granville, ND.

Roger attended the Granville school until 1961 when he enlisted in the Navy. He was given a medical discharge later that year and returned to work as an auto mechanic for Firestone until 1968.

In February 1963 Roger married Marion Woodall in Minot, ND.

Although Roger was originally trained and worked as an Auto Mechanic for Firestone Inc. in 1968, he moved his family from Minot ND to Orlando, FL to become a commercial electrician. Roger was highly skilled and well respected in his trade. He retired from Kim’s Electric in Jacksonville, FL in 2010.

Roger was an engaged Husband, Father, Grandfather, and Great Grandfather who enjoyed attending his children’s and grand children’s activities and sporting events. He was always there to help family or a neighbor in need, and was a Mr. Fixit for his family and friends. Roger also enjoyed, as a hobby, restoring late model cars.

Roger was an honest, hard working, self made man, with many talents and a servant’s heart that will be sorely missed by all.

Roger was preceded in death by his parents, by his brothers Douglas Dalen and Jim Dalen, and sister Larraine Dalen, and his daughters Mary Beth and Karen. He is survived by his wife Marion Woodall Dalen; brother Larry Dalen; children Brian Dalen, Kevin Dalen and Lori Dalen Mason; grandchildren Sean Mason, Nicole Mason, Kayla Dalen, Noah Dalen, Daniel Dalen, Timothy Dalen, Alexis Dalen, Luke Dalen, Sophia Dalen, Jeff Howard, Jodie Tibbetts, Ryan Tibbetts, Stephanie Tibbetts; and great-grandson Sawyer Mason, great-grand daughters Jacqueline and Paisley Howard, and Ryleigh and Cameron Tibbetts.

A memorial service is scheduled for Wednesday, September 8, 2021, at 3 pm, in the Broadus-Raines Chapel. All are invited to attend. 

People wishing to honor Roger’s lifelong commitment to family and community can make donations to the St. Judes’s Childrens Hospital.
