    Roger Joseph Lennon, a longtime resident of Warwick, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 at home, surrounded by his loving family. He was 74 years old.

    Born May 5, 1946, in New York City, he was the oldest of eight children of Dr. Roger and Eleanor (Mooney) Lennon.

    Roger proudly served in the United States Army JAG Corps from 1967 to 1989, earning the rank of major.

    Roger was well-educated, having attended Fordham Prep and earning degrees from Boston College (BS), Boston University (Juris Doctorate) and numerous Army war colleges.

    He worked as an Operations Manager for Blue Circle Raia in Mahwah, N.J.

    Roger is survived by his wife of 45 years, June (nee Lenato); son Roger James Lennon (Josephine) of Warwick; daughter Kerry Cunha (Jon) of Chantilly, Va.; two grandchildren: Christopher and William; sisters: Eleanor Peterson of Latham and Alice Lennon of Stratford, Conn.; brothers: Terrence Lennon of Ossining and Michael Lennon of Albany, NY; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

    He was predeceased by three brothers: Brendan, Peter and Kevin.

    Our family would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the Hospice nurses who cared for Roger; especially his “Angels”- Tricia, Kelly, Karen and Donna who went above and beyond in their care and compassion for Roger. We are forever grateful.

    The family held a private farewell followed by cremation.

    A Memorial Visitation and a Funeral Mass will be take place a later time when all can attend, with interment in Warwick Cemetery with military honors.
