Warroad native Roger Christian, a member of the 1960 U.S. gold medal-winning Olympic team, has died at the age of 75.
Roger and his brother Billy helped lead the Americans to their first gold, then joined together to form Christian Brothers, a Warroad-based company that made hockey sticks.
Roger’s brother, Ginny, played for the Sioux in the 1940s. Billy’s grandson, Brock Nelson, current plays for the Sioux.
