ROGER FOLEY Roger Foley, an icon of Boulder City, passed away Aug. 18, 2014. Though a recluse in his golden years, Roger was born in Chicago, and moved with his parents, Joe and Aline, to Barstow, Calif. Roger played the tuba in high school and was involved in several academic societies. He met his wife, Dena, while working his way through college at MacDonald Douglas. His parents helped purchase Foley's Chevron in Boulder City, near Fort Lucinda. An avid pilot, Roger joined the Boulder City Aeronautics Council and was instrumental in securing landing lights at the end of the old Boulder City runways. Roger was an outdoors man who enjoyed motor-cycling, hunting and tennis. He won several trophies for slalom, high speed and endurance water skiing. Roger enjoyed league bowling at Boulder Bowl and he was a prominent member of the Lions Club. In retirement, he went back to school and got his real estate license. He worked for Katie Cartilage Brokerage until the late 1990's and enjoyed retirement playing computer games. He is survived by his sons, David and Daniel, and their families. Private services will be held. Family and friends can sign an online memorial guestbook at www.bouldercityfamilymortuary.com
