Roger A. Staab

Roger Alexius Staab, 82, Hays died Saturday March 3,2017 at Good Samaritan Center in Hays. He was born October 30, 1934 on the family farm in Severin, KS to Alexius and Celestina (Weigel) Staab. He was the sixth of ten children. He attended Pleasant Ridge School (Severin, KS) and graduated from Hays High School in 1952. He married Verla M Kreutzer June 2, 1954.

Roger was a hard working man who was wise and admired by many, especially his family.

He served as a volunteer Fireman in Hays (1957 to 1964), was a lifetime member of the Knights of Columbus and served on many local and state boards throughout his lifetime.
