Obituary

Roger Hilton Stamp, of Vandalia, died peacefully Tuesday evening, December 8, 2020 in his home, just twenty days shy of his 94th birthday.

His life began December 28, 1926 in North Porter Township, Michigan, the youngest of three children born to Lawrence “Ben” and Maude (Hilton) Stamp. 

Roger graduated from Vandalia High School in 1943 and enlisted in the U.S. Navy during World War II on his eighteenth birthday.  He was honorably discharged in 1946.  Roger married Lois Ann Parsons December 30, 1948 in Jones, Michigan.  He was a self-made man who loved his work and was recognized by his peers as being a leading farmer in Cass County.

Roger served on the Cass Co-operative Board, the Michigan National Bank Board of Cassopolis, and was a member of the Lions Club of Cassopolis.  In his younger years Roger played on an area-wide baseball league.  He enjoyed hunting, loved his dogs, and played on the Diamond Lake Golf League.  Thanks to his wife, who dragged him all over the world, Roger and Lois traveled extensively.

Roger will be greatly missed by family and friends.  He is survived by his wife of almost seventy-two years, Lois Stamp of Vandalia; two daughters, Susan (Tom) Boynton of Vandalia, Jane M. (Terry Davis) Stamp-Davis of White Pigeon; two sons, Thomas J. (Yolanda) Stamp of Jones, John R. Stamp of Marcellus; twelve grandchildren, Amanda (Jason) Hoff, Roger (Kristen) Stamp, Malcolm (MaRinda) Stamp, Adam (Jill) Boynton, John (Heather) Boynton, Lisa (Justin) Dentler, Amy (Reid) Hanley, Betsy (Ryan Woods) Stamp, Samuel (Kelly) Davis, Peter Davis, Thomas (Taylor) Davis, Lydia (Mitchell) Hawkins; twenty-seven and ½ great grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his parents; one sister, Ruth Tietsort; and one brother, Robert Stamp.

Roger will be accorded full Military Honors in a private family ceremony in East Union Cemetery in Porter Township.

The family prefers contributions in memory of Roger be made to a Veterans Service Organization of the donor’s choice.
