Roger retired after a “52 years of a life sentence” as an Expeditor at Raytheon Technology Company in 2011. His mischievous antics were well known by all; “I don’t need any stinkin’ badges!” when prompted to show his ID, and telling new hires that they could pick up their free turkey or “honey of a ham” coupon from the guard shack for various holidays.
He enjoyed music, boating, fishing, dancing, Film Noir, and was a big WWII buff, as well as a devout Yankees Fan (go Yankees!). He was an active member of the Tyngsboro Sportsman’s’ Club and a lifelong member of The Chelmsford Elks. He also enjoyed spending his summers in Vermont entertaining his family and friends.
He was married to the late Marie P. (Hayes) for more than 33 years and was the father of the late Stephen Wilde and the late Kelly Putnicki. He was also predeceased by his twin, Gerald, and a brother, Donald.
Roger is survived by a son, Raymond Wilde of Dracut; daughters, Elizabeth Nason and her husband Jeffrey of Chelmsford, Tracy Charbonneau and her husband Mark of Russell, PA, a sister, Janet Guild of FL; sister-in-law, Marjorie Wilde of Md, a sister in law, Barbara Wilde of Lowell, Mass, his grandchildren Jennifer Challies and her husband Brandon, Jared Charbonneau, Rachel Nason, Danielle Charbonneau, and Jeffrey Nason Jr. and a great granddaughter, Adelaide Challies. He is also survived by a niece, Julie Stalker-Wilde and a nephew, Michael Wilde both of NY
He also survived by his fiancé Bernice Despres of Waltham with whom he spent 10 years and her family whom he loved.
Roger will be greatly missed by his friends in the Receiver Lab; Mike Kelly, Rube, Dick Kessler, Bob Thompson, Mark Koehnke, Steve Sparagna,(Pretty as a Rainbow), and Leo Hanley. His very good friend, Claude Cloutier, and the members of the Valley Lake Association, Aldea Duplessis and those of the “French Connection” are just a few who he enjoyed spending his time with.
