Roger Stanley Kueffer, of Wilmington, died Tuesday, April 7, 2015, at New Hanover Regional Medical Center. He was 66.

Mr. Kueffer was the son of the late Stanley Kueffer and Nanny Gross Kueffer. Born in California, Missouri, he migrated to Wilmington in 2001 after a lifetime of traveling the country working in the computer industry for companies such as Data Point, Nortel and Northrop Grumman. He proudly served for eight years in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War.

Roger was an avid NASCAR fan, especially the #3 car of Dale Earnhardt. His love of cars led him to restore a 1965 GTO. As a member of the National Pontiac Club and participant in many local car shows, he shared his passion with others. This mechanical expertise highlighted his reputation as the “neighborhood lawn mower repair guy.”

Roger and his wife and soul mate, Mary Lou, attended services at Wrightsboro United Methodist Church. They helped with the food pantry, picking up donations from the Food Bank and stocking shelves.

He will be dearly missed. He was so loved by so many. “Be strong for us our dear Roger, and watch over us as you find peace in the Lord.”

Mr. Kueffer is survived by his wife, Mary Lou Galbreath Kueffer; three children, Tanya Arkwright and husband, David, of Gulf Port, Mississippi, Lora Amarando and fiancé, Jeff Timmons, of Wilmington and Christopher Davis and wife, Susan, of Laurel, Maryland; six grandchildren, Brook Ashley Arkwright, Britney Marie Arkwright, Hanna Brielle Arkwright, David Jake Arkwright, Alyssa Lucia Amarando and Amanda Lee Amarando; two great-grandchildren, Hunter Gauge Clark and Lyle Porter Clark; one sister, Peggy Sue Davison, of Arizona; and a sister-in-law, Jenice Gordon, of Wilmington.
