Roger worked at the St. Francis Co-Op, later becoming the Farm Bureau Agency Manager in St. Francis. He also was an active member of the Shriners. He later moved to the West Coast where he worked in the carpentry trade. Roger became the General Manager for Salem Masonry of Salem, Oregon. There wasn't anything that Oley couldn't make, fix, build or rebuild. Nothing too much of a challenge for him. He made friends easily and had many at that. He was very easy going, witty, hard working, non judgmental, caring, supportive, a Golf Channel fanatic and most of all, he loved his God, family and friends. It meant so much to him that he was able to farm the same ground his father and grandfather did. He always felt at home while being behind the wheel of the tractor and was at peace whenever he was working the land. He was proud of his heritage and the love of his Eberhardt "clan" and his special cousin Dee Dee.
Roger has been a resident of Harrisonville, MO for 31 years. He attended the Harrisonville Church of the Nazarene. He enjoyed being a part of the men's prayer group and appreciated the love and support of them throughout these last two years.
