MR. ROGER EUGENE YARBERRY, a lifelong resident of Kansas City, Missouri, passed away at the age 90 on March 11, 2018 in Cameron, Missouri. He was born September 18, 1927, the only son of the late Helen M. Bastien Chaltas. Roger graduated from high school, then met and married the love of his life, the late Bernice Gloria Weiseman of Forest Green, Missouri, on May 20, 1947. He was drafted during the Korean War and served two (2) years in the Army. Roger had a knack for repairing anything mechanical and eventually retired from a 25 year plus career with the General Services Administration as a heating and air conditioning technician. He also had a passion for gardening which turned into a business where he and Bernice met many friends while providing them with plants and vegetables from their home business. Roger was a long-time member of the Liberty Farmer’s Market, held a lifetime membership in the Men’s Garden Club and was a Master Gardener. Roger and Bernice were also long-time members of Holy Cross Lutheran Church. Roger will also be remembered for his love of animals, gentleness, kindness, caring and his extraordinary sense of humor.

Roger was preceded in death by his stepfather, John D Chaltas.
