GOSHEN — Roger Lee Kindy – a fireman to hundreds, a friend to many and a devoted family man to his ever growing family – passed away Sept. 7, 2020, at the Courtyard Healthcare Center in Goshen surrounded by his three loving children. He was 86 years old.

Born Feb. 28, 1934, in Middlebury, to Raymond and Florence (Mishler) Kindy, Roger was raised as an avid Cubs fan. His love for the game continued throughout his adult life, leading him to the Goshen Softball Fast Pitch Hall of Fame. Educated at Middlebury High School, Roger graduated in 1952 as a multi-sport letterer. He then went on to join the U.S. Army where he proudly served in the Korean War. Shortly after arriving back home, Roger married Sheila Joan Struble on Dec. 18, 1955. They spent the greater part of their lives in Elkhart, where they raised three children together.
