He was a graduate of Beverly High School, class of 1956 and was a lifelong employee of General Electric in Lynn. He was a member of St. Mary’s of the Annunciation Church in Danvers MA. Beloved husband of the late Carol (Jendraszek) Marland and beloved father of Cheryl and her husband Glen Thomas. Son Michael and his wife Nancy.

Roger served in the US Navy in the Seabees unit before spending his entire career of 38 years working at the General Electric. He was an avid woodworker and enjoyed making fine furniture and holiday ornaments. He also enjoyed stamp collecting and commemorative coin collecting. He traveled around the world with his wife Carol and with many of his closest friends.

His family wants to extend their sincere gratitude to all the providers at Merrimack House for their compassionate and caring service and to the staff and residents at Bayberry in Tewksbury. He was a loving and caring husband, beloved parent and friend to so many, he will be greatly missed.

Roger was going to visit us in the fall and stay with us for a couple of days. We were so looking forward to it. We were so surprised when Roger called and said he was in the hospital and wouldn't make it. Our thoughts have been with Roger and his family ever since. We can see by the obituary that he led a very rewarding, successful, productive life and was loved by family and friends. He is leaving this world with a lot to be proud of. Love, Ralph and Linda Frazier
Hello Cheryl, Michael and Debbie. I feel very badly about Roger's passing. We were neighbors for thirty five years. He and Carol were good neighbors and friends. I will miss our conversations over the back yard gardening and on the front porch. Roger was such a sensitive and good man. Best wishes to all of you. Shirley Ganey
So sorry for your loss of both parents too soon! The DeAlmeida Family
My deepest sympathy to Cheryl, Michael, Debbie and your families. As children, Roger and the Frazier cousins spent a lot of time together during the summer and holidays. I remember calling him "Little Roger" to differentiate from his father who was also Roger! He was older than any of us and anything but little! Roger was a considerate, loving, caring person and he will be sorely missed. Love, Elaine Frazier

To the Marland family, I belong to Roger's newest group of friends, and I hope you know how important he was to us all. We learned about his deep love of your Mom, his enormous pride in his children, and his great joy in his grandchildren. The recent trip to New York was a fabulous experience for him, and he couldn't say enough about how much he enjoyed it. He was very grateful for all the blessings he had in his life, and for the great care you all took of him. I think I speak for all of us when I tell you how much he was loved and how much he will be missed by us all, even though we only recently came to know him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. With deepest sympathy, Pat Shanahan
Dear Cheryl,Micheal and Deborah, I was saddened to hear that your father had died. We knew him as a young man when we would visit his parents in Beverly. My father, Joseph was brother to big Roger. I always remembered "my little Roger" as his mother Albina called him, to be a friendly out going person who was a lot of fun. I'm sure that he will be missed by all who knew him. Sally Marland Cook.
I wish to extend my condolences to Roger's family and friends, I had the pleasure to work with Roger at GE and found him to be a true gentleman and wonderful co-worker.
Thinking of you every day especially today. Sending love and prayers for my dear friend Roger and his wonderful family. Even though I have not known Roger for a long time I got to know him. He was very brave and had a very positive attitude. He was very proud of his family and loved his grand children very much. He will be remembered fondly. I feel very fortunate to have met Roger. So sorry I am unable to come today to the services because I am in Naples Florida. R.I P. my friend and God be with you and all your loved. Ann Rutkowski
