Obituary of Roger Stanley Morenc
AIKEN, S.C. — Roger Stanley Morenc passed away on November 30, 2022, at age 79, following a brave fight against cancer.
Roger was born on June 7, 1943, in Detroit, Michigan, to the late Stanley Chester Morenc and the late Mary Gach Morenc. He received his bachelor’s degree in psychology from Wayne State University, but he found his career in the computer field. He had a brilliant, creative mind and was talented in all aspects of the ever-changing technology. He was always trying something new—he developed apps for the iPhone and iPad in retirement.
Roger had a love for travel for both work and leisure. His career took him to Japan 26 times, India six times, and England and Europe many times. Roger and his wife, Carol, enjoyed their last pleasure trip to Italy this fall. Roger also had a love of the arts and for fine food and wine. You knew he felt the emotions brought forth by a good song or movie and relished in collecting pieces of art with his wife during their travels together. He even tried his hand at creating his own sculptures.
His passion for golf began at the age of 13, and his love of the game lasted throughout his life. He took a personal thrill in being able to play the private club where he caddied in his youth. He taught Carol the sport, and in their 49-plus years together, they played many notable courses, including Pebble Beach.
Roger had a joy for life and for sharing his excitement with family, friends, and colleagues. No matter what it was, if Roger found something he enjoyed—some thing or experience—sharing it with others allowed him to enjoy it again. His greatest passion was for his family. He will be remembered as a wonderful husband, father, son, and brother. He felt enormous pride in his three children and eight grandchildren.
Roger is survived by his beloved wife, Carol Morenc; children, Roger Morenc (Heather), Bryan Morenc (Gwynn), and Sara Jackson (Preston); grandchildren, Grant, Paige, Mason, Sydney, Samantha, Olivia, Reese, and Peyton; siblings, Donna Pesek, Cathy Longo (Joe), and Gary Morenc (Cheryl); sister-in-law, Kathy Pare (Bob); and brother-in-law, Tom Anaman (Becky).
A memorial service and celebration of life will be held at 1:30 p.m., January 6th, 2023, at George Funeral Home.
