In Memoriam — Roger Cubbage

Monday, August 31, 2020
Roger Cubbage, a long-time PPTC member, died unexpectedly on August 13, 2020 at the age of 79. He was also a treasured member of the “Wednesday Irregulars” bicycling group.
 
Roger was born in Washington, DC. He attended Woodrow Wilson High School, where his father was a science teacher. He graduated from Elizabethtown College and received his law degree from Dickinson School of Law. After passing the DC Bar, he worked for the U.S. Department of Justice, Criminal Division. He initially took up running when his doctor recommended he get more exercise and completed 4 marathons, but later turned to cycling, which became his passion as he considered it much more fun!
 
His wife, Joann, says all his college friends called him “Jolly Roger” - a name all of his PPTC friends would concur was completely apt as he was always friendly and enthusiastic about cycling and his buddies. In addition to his wife, he is survived by two sons, Brian and James. Details on a memorial service will be announced at a later time. Photo: Roger standing on the right in the yellow jersey.
