James Roger Nuttall, son of James Vernard and Iris Verrena (Andersen) Nuttall, died November 19, 2017 under the care of Aspen Hospice in Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center.

He was born November 12, 1931, number three of twelve children in Idaho Falls, Idaho. He graduated from Idaho Falls High School and attended Ricks College where he performed in a tumbling team and exhibition acrobatics and clown diving. He also attended BYU in Provo.

Roger met and soon married Doris Kotter August 20, 1954 in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple. A short time later, he was drafted into the Army. Doris and first born son were able to join him in Verdun, France where Roger was stationed.

Roger loved construction. He worked for 36 years at Amcor (now Old Castle) in the concrete construction business. He built two homes for his family and helped others with theirs. After retirement, he built furniture and did many construction jobs for family and friends.

He was active and faithfully served in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Roger and his wife served two missions together—one in Greensboro, North Carolina and in St. Louis, Missouri.
