Roger Harlan Schwerin

Our beloved dad, papa, brother, and friend Roger left us for the golden gates of Heaven while surrounded by his family and friends at Methodist Hospital on April 29th. 

Roger was born on May 28, 1957 in Redwood Falls, MN to Harlan & Carol Schwerin. He graduated from Wood Lake high school in 1975 and went on to study fluid power at Minnesota West in Granite Falls, MN; graduating in 1977. In 1983, he pursued his lifelong career with Oil Air Products; retiring in January 2022 as the CEO of the company.
Roger was a driven professional with an unmatched work ethic. When he could find the time to step away from the office, you’d find him golfing, fishing, water skiing, snowmobiling or hunting. While raising his two children, he found joy in coaching them in their various sporting activities over the years. His lake home in the Brainerd lakes area was his happy place, especially when there surrounded by family and friends. 
Roger leaves behind his son Kevin Schwerin (Beth) Wood Lake, MN, daughter Kari Griffin-Harte (Joe) Port Townsend, WA, three grandchildren Kason (10), Brynn (5) and Kennedi (3); his two brothers, Clayton (Paula) Naples, FL, Dave (Diane) Wood Lake, MN; sister, Kaye Wothe (Don) Minnetonka, MN, several nieces and nephews, and countless friends. He is preceded in death by his parents Harlan and Carol and nephew, Garrett Schwerin. 
A special thanks to Dr. Parashos and the team at Struthers Parkinson’s Center, along with Dr. McIver for their incredible knowledge, skill, care, and friendship over the years. 
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to The Park Nicollet Struthers Parkinson’s Center at 6701 Country Club Drive, Minneapolis, MN 55427 and make reference to The Schwerin Family Fund.
Roger was taken from us all far too soon and will be dearly missed. 

To plant memorial trees or send flowers to the family in memory of Roger Schwerin, please visit our flower store.


I know Roger way back from our high school years. He was a great guy and outstanding member of the Wood Lake High School graduation class of 1975. He was co captain of the football team our senior year and participated in other sports.
His parents were wonderful as well. My deepest sympathy to Clayton, Dave , Kaye and the entire Schwerin family at this time of loss.
Sending love and prayers.

Kevin & Kari - my thoughts are with you during this difficult time and the days ahead. I have many great memories of your Dad, which I hold dear; his generosity and kindness. You are all in my prayers.

Some people come into our lives and touch our hearts and we are never the same. Roger changed our life for the better with his humor, warmth, jest for life and kindness. Thanks for the wonderful memories my friend! My sympathies to Kevin and Kari and many families and friends Roger touched. Heaven gained a Great Angel!

My prayers and sympathy goes out the Schwerin family. I knew and met Roger when I worked at Denison Hydraulics. He was a great person. I sure he will be missed by all who ever had any contact with him. Again my deepest condolences.
