He is survived by his wife Pam Taylor, his son Brandon Barngrover, his sisters Nancy and Janet and his brother Ron.
Roger (Mr. B.) was a beloved third grade teacher at Crystal Springs Elementary School for 20 years. He was passionate about theater and music and his students knew him for his wonderful sense of humor. Roger’s life passion was fishing and died while doing what he loved most.
