Roger W. Nading

Roger W. Nading, 74, long-time resident of Livonia, passed away peacefully, in the company of his wife and son on June 5, 2020, following a lengthy struggle with Lewy Body Dementia and Parkinson’s disease. 

Roger was a graduate of Wayne State University with a degree in Earth Science.  He owned and operated a landscaping business for over 45 years, specializing in planting large trees and vegetation control.  He loved nature and the great outdoors.   In his leisure time, Roger enjoyed the comradery of friends -- playing pickleball, beating anyone who played golf with him, and cruising down Hines Drive in his 1966 Pontiac GTO.  His first love was music.  If Roger wasn’t listening to or writing music, he was jamming out on the guitar or playing the piano.  For years, he served as a Meals on Wheels volunteer.

Roger was preceded in death by his parents, Wesley and Helen Nading of Jackson, Michigan.  He will be remembered by his beloved wife of 48 years, Elaine (Morell), and devoted son, Wyatt; brother, Richard (Jill); sister, Rhonda Sexton; and many other loving family members and friends.
