Amann, Roger Lee, Sr.
has gone to be with the Lord and to be rejoined with his beloved wife  Janet Kay Amann of 41 years on Sunday, August 23, 2015.
  Dearest father of Lisa Catherine Tuttle (Joey), Diana Lynn Van Leuven (Mark), Roger Lee Amann, Jr.  (Danielle) and the late Christina Lynn Amann; dearest Po Po to his five grandchildren Marissa, Meredith, Zachary, Caleb and Cody; dearest brother of Ron Amann (Dodie), Rita Burns (Joe), Raymond and the late Robert Amann; dearest uncle;  dearest cousin; dearest brother-in-law; and dearest friend to so many.   
  Roger lived in St. Louis, MO until 2011 when he retired to Knoxville, TN after 40 years in construction as a welder. Roger spent most of his retirement volunteering with Habitat for Humanity building just under 100 homes throughout East Tennessee and St. Louis, MO.  Roger's biggest joy was being Po Po to his five beautiful grandchildren.  For the past eight years Roger has missed his Janet terribly and longed for the day to be reunited. Rejoice with them today and know that they are together again in Heaven joking around like young teenagers, cruising the strip and hanging out at the Steak N' Shake ordering a chocolate malt for two.
