Roger Alan Wise was born in Goldsboro, North Carolina on November 7, 1949. He, along with his five brothers and one sister, were raised by his mother, Edna Beck Wise. After graduating from high school, Roger enlisted in the United States Navy. He served the country as a Propulsion and Engineering Mechanic on the USS HOLLAND (AS-32) from December 16, 1968 until he was honorably discharged on October 13, 1974.
Roger joined the Unification Movement in the 80s, where he met and married Hiromi Takeda, a sister from Tokyo, Japan. They were married on July 1, 1982 in the 2,075 Couple Blessing Ceremony at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Roger and his wife eventually settled in Denver, Colorado. Ever the entrepreneur, he founded his own business, A Wise Move Inc., in 1983, the same year his first child, Tomeo, was born. Roger and Hiromi would go on to have two more children, Tamar, born in 1984, and Tarina, born in 1989.
Roger’s company, A Wise Move, served the state of Colorado for over three decades, until his eventual retirement. Roger was well liked and generous; he loved to see people smile and helped them along their journey to happiness in any way he could. Optimistic, humble, and forward-thinking, Roger was a significant force in the lives of many. He was always the first to forgive and tried to lead by example.
Roger passed in his sleep due to natural causes on Dec 16, 2018. He is survived by his wife, Hiromi, his three children, Tomeo, Tamar, and Tarina, his grandson Koa, his sister, Vicky, and his mother, Edna. He will be missed by all who knew him.
