Roger A. Pavey, 83, of Lakeville, passed away during the early morning hours of Monday, June 8th in Memorial Hospital of South Bend.

 Roger was born in South Bend, Indiana on October 18, 1936 to Charles E. and Barbara L. (Enders) Pavey. On July 3, 1955 in Flora, Indiana he married the love of his life, Sharon J. Cohee. He worked at the Bendix Missile Plant in Mishawaka, and had obtained the highest security clearance at the plant. After retiring from Bendix, he and his wife owned and operated Pavey’s Place for 30 years. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge #130 of Mishawaka. He loved woodworking, the outdoors, fishing and traveling, but his greatest joy came from his family and grandkids.

Roger is survived by his loving wife, Sharon along with their two daughters, Kathy Pavey of Lutz, Florida and Linda (Dr. Ken) Elek of South Bend. He was the proud grandfather of four; Tara Spychalski, Jason (Lauren) Elek, Justin (Melissa) Elek, and Jordan Elek, along with 8 great grandchildren. Roger is also survived by his sister, Nancy Stajkowski of South Bend. He was preceded in death by his parents, a sister, Lura Bunch and a brother, Phillip Pavey.

Friends may visit with the family on Wednesday June 10th, from 4:00 until 8:00pm in the Hanley and Sons Funeral Home, 23421 State Road 23, South Bend.

I will miss all the good times we had at Cohee picnics, Amish dinners and dining out. Still remember and miss your adventures in breadmaking and my adventures in breadeating! My love and sympathy to Sharon and the family
