AUBURN — Roger Gerard Belanger, 63, of Auburn, died Tuesday, April 17, at the Hospice House of Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice in Auburn, surrounded by loved ones.

Roger was born in Lewiston on Sept. 1, 1954, the son of Lucien and Constance Arnoldy Belanger. Educated in local schools, he was a graduate of Lewiston High School, Class of ’73, and attended a technical college afterward for respiratory therapy. He worked at St. Mary’s as a respiratory therapist for several years, then worked for Spillers in Lewiston as a service technician, serving all over New England. He invested 36 years and retired this past February.

Roger was part of several leagues, including the Auburn Dart League, and was active in the Androscoggin County Fish and Game Association in Auburn. He loved hunting, fishing and spending time with his family and grandchildren. He touched so many people’s lives because he was generous, loving and made people feel welcomed. He took in and loved stray animals.

Survivors include spouse, Judith Sardella, of Auburn; a brother, Daniel Belanger, of Auburn; two sons, Mark Sardella and wife, Tracey, of Westbrook, David Sardella and wife, Lindsey, of Leeds; two daughters, Amanda Sardella, of Lewiston, and Katie Sardella and fiancé, Shaun Sturgis, of Auburn. He was a wonderful grandfather to eight grandchildren, Alexis, Benjamin, Chase, Sophia, Jacob, Patrick, Caleb and Gabriella.

He was predeceased by his parents.
