ROGER MICHAEL BRIEF
58, of Marlette, formerly of Frankenmuth, passed away surrounded by his family on Tuesday, December 13, 2022. He was born March 3, 1964 in Marlette to Ronald and Doris Ann (Lambert) Brief.

Roger graduated from Frankenmuth High School with the class of 1982. He took some construction classes and briefly worked for a construction company before working at Zeilinger Wool Company in Frankenmuth for over thirty years. He was blessed with a rare skill to operate and repair textile machinery dating back to the 1930’s. Roger taught that skill to others over the years, as he was also a patient teacher of many things. An avid outdoorsman, Roger enjoyed hunting, fishing, and rustic camping. Many trips were taken with family and friends, where countless memories were made. Roger had a fun personality and was always willing to lend a helping hand to others in need. For twenty-three years, he helped care for his boss and friend, Gary. Gary was in a hunting accident that rendered him wheelchair bound.

Roger is survived by his loving mother, Doris Ann Brief of Frankenmuth; brother, Ron (Mary) Brief of Kingston; aunts: Sharon Brandibur of Kingston, Toots Lambert of Marlette, Beverly Brief of Albion; nieces: Elizabeth (Brandt) LaPouttre of Essexville, Kristina (Ryan Boyd) Brief of Sandusky; nephew, Jonathan (Chelsey) Brief of Sterling Heights; great nieces and nephews: Connar Brief, Brandt, James and Rayna LaPouttre; Alayna and Lola Boyd; Linzi (Dakota) Jenkins; many cousins and close friends. He is preceded in death by his father, Ronald F. Brief; grandparents: Floyd and Nellie Brief, Orville and Thelma Lambert; uncles: James Brief, Deneen Lambert, Wayne Lambert, James Brandibur.
