Roger A Wick, 85, of East Greenbush, passed away peacefully at home on March 4th, 2019. Roger was born in Binghamton, NY. Following high school, Roger joined the Army and served during the Korean era. Following his service, he attended and graduated from SUNY Binghamton with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration. He worked for the NYS Department of Mental Health for 33 years, rising to the position of Director before retiring in 1996. Rod enjoyed long Sunday drives with Martha, his wife of 59 years, and loved vacationing in Ogunquit every early fall with her for more than three decades. Rod took up golf upon retirement, and while rarely cracking the 100 mark, he loved every minute of it. Roger was always proud of his three children, Suzanne (Nicholas Pazienza), David (Kimberly) and Lisa. He was a loving Papa to four grandchildren (Jared and Rena Pazienza, and Brendan and Dalia Wick). Roger was well loved by all who met him, known for his peaceful and positive demeanor, always sharing a kind word in good times and bad, and finding the best in everyone.

Rockefeller Funeral Home, Inc. 165 Columbia Turnpike, Rensselaer, NY. Spring Interment will be in New Rural Cemetery, Rensselaer.
