He was born February 6, 1950, in Steubenville, OH, a son of the late Copher P. and Rosena Lutes Van Horn. He was also preceded in death by his brother Donald Van Horn.

Roger began his career as a brick layer for local #11 then went on to work at the former WSX in the labor gang and as a grounds keeper at the general offices. He retired after 35 years of service.
