WINSLOW - Roger Sammis Titus, 92, passed away June 1, 2018, at Gray Birch Living Center in Augusta. He was born April 25, 1926 in Huntington, N.Y., the son of Samuel J. and Ella E. (Green) Titus.

He graduated from Oyster Bay High School in 1944, and continued his education at Parsons' School of Design, graduating in 1949.

On Feb. 9, 1952, he married Jennie Warren at the First Congregational UC Church. He was a veteran who proudly served his country in the U.S. Army from September 1944, until his honorable discharge in June 1946.

Roger and his wife Jennie owned and operated Titus Interior Decorators in Ridgefield, Conn., from 1952-1954, and then Titus Interior Decorators in Waterville, where Roger continued working until well into his 80s.

He was a member of the Waterville Community Garden Club, Ballroom Dance Club, Evening Sandwich Program (30 years), Heart of Maine Squares, Silver Sneakers, Waterville First Congregational UCC and Masons.

Roger enjoyed making stained-glass items, gardening, dancing, exercise classes, and actively pursued these hobbies through the age of 91. His joy of gardening and tending to indoor plants continued throughout the remaining days of his life while living and being cared for at Gray Birch.

He is survived by his son, Lauchlin Titus and wife, Linda, of Vassalboro; his daughter, Elizabeth Bridges and husband, Arthur, of Morrill; grandson, Miah Titus of Orono; granddaughter, Morgan Rau and husband, Tory, of Vassalboro; two great-granddaughters, Evelyn Titus of Old Town/Orono, and Sovie Rau of Vassalboro; two great-grandsons, Noah Rau and Finn Rau, both of Vassalboro; sister-in-law, Pauline Titus of Alaska.

A Celebration of Life will be held on June 16, 2018 at 1 p.m., at the First Congregational UCC, 7 Eustis Parkway, Waterville.
Arrangements under the direction and care of Dan & Scott's Cremation & Funeral Service, 445 Waterville Road, Skowhegan.
