Roger Lee Taggart, son of Frank and Lois Taggart, was born June 12, 1937, in Beloit, Wisconsin.

Roger and Beulah Lee were set up on a blind date in 1959 and were married in 1960. Roger worked a short time for Philco and then for Raytheon at White Sands Missile Range as an engineer. He retired from Raytheon after 36 years of service. He passed away October 19, 2022.
