Roger Clark Morrison, age 66, of St. Elmo, Illinois passed away at 10:15 a.m. Wednesday, December 6, 2017 at his home in St. Elmo, Illinois.


Visitation will be in the memory of Roger C. Morrison and his mother, the late Leora C. Sluder from 5 p. 7 p. m. on Tuesday, December 12, 2017 at the C&A Pagel Funeral Home in St. Elmo, Illinois. Memorials may go to the family or the donor’s choice. 


Roger was born on April 6, 1951 in Fayette County, Illinois, the son of Leora C. (Morrison) Sluder.  Roger was an owner/operator of Morrison Excavating for many years. He was a fun-loving man who never met a stranger and usually addressed the girls with “hey Hun”. He was always ready to tell a good joke, followed by a loud laugh. On most days, you could find Roger drinking coffee and grabbing a bite to eat at one of the local restaurants. Big Rog left a lasting impression on folks either with his big grin, ornery personality or his favorite tattoo.


He is survived by his son, Jared Morrison (wife Natalie) of St. Elmo, Illinois; five grandchildren, Jozsef, Gracie, Lexie, Ella and Jack Morrison and one great-grandchild, Decker Ritchey.


He was preceded in death by his mother, Leora Sluder; stepdad, Gene Sluder; son, Benji Morrison and brother, Michael Sluder.
