Roger Cass was born on Thursday, June 9, 1932 in Scotland to DeWitt and Mary (Homan) Cass. He graduated from Scotland High School in 1950. He drove a gravel truck for Ray Diede until he entered the US Army during the Korean conflict.  After his military service, he began farming southwest of Scotland, and he farmed there for the rest of his life. Roger was united in marriage to Bernice Weidenbach on October 23, 1953 in Scotland. He was a member of the Scotland American Legion. His hobbies were bowling and fishing. Roger was known as a good-humored man and  loved to tell stories, jokes and laugh with everyone he met. Roger passed away on Monday, August 10, 2009 at Avera Sacred Heart Hospital in Yankton at the age of 77 years, 2 months, and 1 day.
Roger’s memory will be cherished by his two children: Curtis and wife Marcella Cass of Scotland and Carla Cass and husband Ray Hoffman, Jr. of Mattoon, Illinois; three grandchildren: Amber and husband Jared Dritz of Owatonna, Minnesota, Aaron Cass of New Orleans, Louisiana, and April Cass of Scotland; two great-grandchildren: Alexis and Kale; and Roger’s special friend, Vi Popma.
Roger was preceded in death by Bernice, his wife of over 50 years, on September 27, 2005, his parents, and a sister.
