Obituary, Roger Lee Lintner

Roger Lee Lintner, 82, a 12-year resident of Kent, CT, formerly of Amenia, NY, died peacefully on Friday, April 7, 2023 at his home in Kent. Mr. Lintner was a supervisor at Taconic Developmental Disabilities Services Office in Wassaic, NY for 33 years retiring in 1995.

Born on May 20, 1940 in Malone, NY, he was the son of the late Thomas and Mildred (Quilliam) Lintner. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by three brothers, Thomas, Donald and Darrell. He was a former member of the Amenia Lions Club in Amenia.

Roger is survived by five children: a son, Jamie and his wife, Kendra, of Hanover, NH and four daughters, Megan and her husband, Keith, of Lugoff, SC; Kara and her husband, Eric, of Millerton, NY; Ellen of Fort Covington, NY and Karen of Fort Covington, NY. In addition to his five children, he is survived by his former wife, Bonnie, of Vero Beach, FL. He is also survived by a sister, Gloria of Rochester, NY and two brothers, Paul of North Bangor, NY and Carl Lintner of Florida; eight grandchildren: Ruby, Vera, Hugh, Rachel, Lauren, Cole, Bryce and Sydnie.

While normally reserved, if Roger liked you, he would have plenty to say. After many years of working for the state, including the last 12 on the nightshift to accommodate the raising of his children, Roger retired early at 55. He enjoyed retirement, spending time around his home in Amenia, mostly puttering, gardening, and cooking BBQ on the back deck. Luckily, Roger was blessed with amazing neighbors, Ned and Pat, who treated him and his kids like family. A loving thank you to the Ahearn family.

The little house in Amenia was its own community, with three young kids going in all directions, often accompanied by too many friends to count. In recent years, Roger was able to experience it all again, with the addition of grandchildren, and always there to offer advice when asked. The best part about living into your 80’s is watching the family grow, and the experiences that accompany a long life.

Funeral services and burial will be private and at the convenience of the family. Memorial contributions may be made to the Amenia Lions Club, P.O. Box 472, Amenia, NY 12501. Arrangements are under the direction of Hufcut Funeral Home in Dover Plains. To send the family an online condolence, please visit For comments, or related info, email Jamie at
