Kragseth, Roger (75), born to Hans and Nora Kragseth in Duluth, MN, passed away on January 16, 2020. He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers Robert, Ronald and Paul, and brother in law John Viren. He is survived by brother Norman Kragseth (Phyllis), sisters Janice Viren and Eleanor Kragseth (Michael Persellin), and many nieces, nephews and extended family. Roger was disabled all his life, but always had a wide smile and an enthusiasm for what he was going to do next! He especially loved visits from friends and family and venturing out into the community. At Christmas he was Santa Claus at holiday gatherings. He had a huge collection of firetrucks and was Hermantown Fire Department's biggest fan. They returned the affection by bringing the truck to his driveway on his birthday, and as a special tribute drove by his home with lights and siren on when he passed. Roger resided at Trillium Services' Jackson Estates where he spent many years with his roommates and wonderful caregivers. The Kragseth family is forever grateful to everyone involved in Roger's care over the years, including the staff at Trillium and Udac, the countless caregivers and social workers, and the doctors and nurses at St. Mary's. He was truly special and loved by all who knew him. He is already deeply missed. A small service and interment will be held in the spring at Park Hill Cemetery where Roger will rest with his parents and brothers.
