Roger C. Jolley, beloved husband, father, Opa (grandfather), brother, uncle, and friend, passed away at the age of 78 peacefully in his loving home in East Brunswick, NJ

on Tuesday, May 1, 2018.

Born on April 14, 1940, in New Brunswick to the late Paul and Mary (Mauren) Jolley. Roger served in the National Guard of the U.S. and was employed by The Coca-Cola Company and J B Acoustical Supply Company.

He is predeceased by his dear brothers-in-law Leo Mayr and Michael Rozembajgier

Surviving are his beloved wife of 57 years, Karin (née Weiss), his daughter and son-in law Cindy and James Gibson and daughter Lori Jolley and her partner George, grandsons Alexander and Nicholas Gibson, and Andrew and Shawn Sorensen, sister-in-law Isolde Mayr Rozembajgier, nieces and nephew, Sheryll Sorensen, Linda Monetti, Janette Utt, Richard Mayr, Renee DiNizio and many great nieces and nephews.

Roger really enjoyed the outdoor life. He loved fishing, boating, puttering in his beautiful yard, playing computer games, the NY Giants football team, and was a die-hard NY Yankees baseball fan (Go Yankees!). He grew the best Jersey tomatoes in the whole wide world! His favorite thing to do was spending time with his family. His grandsons were the apple of his eye.  He was very involved in all of their lives and loved them dearly. His whole family will truly miss him but are so grateful to have had him in their lives. He was a kind, caring, fun husband and the love of his wife Karin's life. 

Roger's family will welcome friends Friday 4-8pm at the Bronson and Guthlein Funeral Home of Milltown, NJ.  Interment at Franklin Memorial Park, North Brunswick, NJ will take place on Saturday.
