In Memoriam: Roger Aloys Seifer (Nov. 11, 1941 – April 5, 2023)

Roger Aloys Seifer, of Silverton, passed away on April 5, 2023. He was 81.

Born on Nov. 11, 1941, in Silverton to Aloysius (A.J.) and Hilda Seifer, Roger attended St. Paul’s Catholic School, Serra Catholic High School in Salem, and Mt. Angel College. He liked to joke that all the schools that he had attended were closed after he left. 

In 1966, Roger married Karen Monson. Together, they built a strong and loving family and enjoyed many years of travel and laughter.

Roger owned Cascade Farm Machinery in Silverton for over 40 years. During that time, he was fortunate to work every day with his brother and best friend, Jack. Roger also served his community in many ways. Over the years, he was president of the Silverton Hospital Foundation Board and active at St. Paul’s Catholic Church.

Roger was preceded in death by his father and mother; sister, Carol McDonald; and daughter-in-law, Nobuko. 

He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Karen; his children, Eric (Melissa) of West Linn, Kristin (Aaron) Newland of Salem, Jason (Laura) of Salem, and Melissa (David) Briggs of Silverton; his 11 grandchildren; and an extended family of siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews.

The family would like to extend their sincere gratitude to the staff of Bonaventure of Salem Memory Care and Willamette Vital Health for their loving care of Roger in the last few years and months.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Arrangements made by Unger Funeral Chapel – Silverton.

In lieu of flowers, Roger requested that he be remembered through donations to Silverton Area Community Aid, Inc. (SACA), Liberty House in Salem, or the Alzheimer’s Association.
