Roger W. Charest

September 2, 1953 — February 19, 2022

Roger Wilfred Charest, 68, of Berlin, NH, passed away on Saturday, February 19, 2022 at his home. He was born on September 2, 1953 in Biddeford, ME, the son of the late Wilfred and Madeleine (Cote) Charest. Roger was raised in Berlin and graduated from Notre Dame High School in 1971.



Roger enjoyed spending time with his wife, kids, and grandkids. He spent 20 years coaching youth hockey with his sons, and was involved in many winning teams. He instilled in his teams a lot of spirit, work ethic, and the pure joy of the game. He coached the ’86-’87 Mites Level II state champs, the ’90-’91 Pee Wee Level II NE Finalist, the ’91-’92 NH Pee Wee Level II state champs, a New Hampshire all-star team, junior varsity, and varsity Berlin High Hockey. He was a co-founder and instructor of the popular power skate program. He also enjoyed coaching his sons in little league baseball for a number of years. He was on the board of directors for the Guardian Angel Credit Union for many years and picked up the game of golf.



Roger worked at Kelley’s Auto Parts, where he retired as owner. During retirement, he enjoyed spending time with his wife Sylvia, kayaking, hiking, camping, woodworking, and riding his ATV. If you knew Roger you knew his big loud laugh!
