Roger Carl Lindberg was born to Clifford Lindberg and Clara Lauritzen on January 27th, 1948, in Concordia, Kansas. He attended grade school and high school in Courtland and graduated in 1966.
He was united in marriage to Janis Buster in 1967, and to this union 3 children were born. Sarah, of Sacramento, CA; Carla (Jeffrey), of Folsom, CA; and Paul (Michelle), of Courtland, KS. He has 8 cherished grandchildren: Jaelin, Jaselle, Rocco, Eleanor, Spencer, Alivia, Bennett, and Holden.
He originally went to barber school in Wichita, KS shortly after marrying Janis, but changed careers to work as a trooper with the Kansas Highway Patrol from 1970 to 1998, stationed in Holton, KS and Mankato, KS, as well as farming.
