Roger Strachota
Our industry is mourning the loss of a dear friend and colleague.

Roger Strachota, 57, passed away March 23 after a long illness. He was the sales director for BMX Medical.

A resident of Edina, Minn., Roger was a graduate of the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. He overcame an early diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis to forge a successful career in medical technology.

"I'm going to miss his positive attitude and his warm smile," said BMX's John Bailey.

Roger's lifelong wish was to find a cure for rheumatoid arthritis and those who want to honor his memory may contribute to the Arthritis Foundation, Minnesota Chapter.
