Obituary for Roger Lee Sachse

Roger Lee Sachse, born September 14th, 1955 in Wilmington, Delaware, and who lived in the Washington D.C. area for over forty years with his loving and devoted wife, Karen Patt Sachse, died on Monday, September 25th, peacefully in his home while surrounded by family after a year-long battle with bladder cancer. Roger grew up in Newport, Delaware, where he attended Conrad High School, and then went on to obtain a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Delaware and a Master of Public Administration from American University. He spent his entire career as a civil servant, working primarily at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) as a business project manager and budget advisor. A lifelong baseball and football fan, he was a supporter of the Philadelphia Phillies and Eagles. His favorite activities (when he wasn’t watching baseball with Karen) were eating quality food and tasting wine with friends, vacationing in the Wild Dunes of Charleston, South Carolina, fishing at Lake Gouldsboro, and talking to his two sons, Christian (32) and Justin (28). He is survived by his wife, two sons, and brother, David Sachse.
