Roger Allen Mondahl passed away on April 3, 2017 at his home in McMinnville. He was 71 years old.
He was born on July 13, 1945 in Blue Earth, MN to Selmer and Marlys Erdahl Mondahl. Roger was a graduate of Blue Earth High School in 1963 and then matriculated from Mankato State University in 1972.
Roger's job as a comptroller for Ralston Purina from 1971-1987 moved the family to several states before landing in McMinnville. He fell in love with Oregon and the family put down roots. During his career as the financial director for McMinnville Water and Light from 1987 – 2007, he brought Water & Light from manual accounting methods to computer methods and developed the first budget.
He was a member of St. James Church and together with his wife was instrumental is starting the youth program.
Roger was an accomplished brewer and when he wasn't developing his craft in the garage he could be found on the golf course. He and Pat treasured their annual Hawaii vacations to get out of the Oregon winter rain to sit on the beach and listen to the ocean. Like any good Norwegian, he was a faithful Minnesota Vikings fan.
Roger was preceded in death by his son, Scott A. Mondahl, in 1991 and sister, Janet Lembke, in 2000. He is survived by his wife Pat Mondahl, brother Bruce Mondahl, daughters; Lorri (Rich) Kercher of Palmyra, PA, Jodi (Jason) Bailey of Hillsboro, OR, and Amy (Carlos De Paula) Mondahl of McMinnville, OR, and four grandchildren; Ethan, Isaac, Ella, and Scott.
