Roger lived a long productive life. On May 6, 1682, when he was about 80, he wrote to Governor Bradstreet saying:

“I am old and weak and bruised (with rupture and colic), and lameness on both feet.” –Roger Williams

Roger died in his beloved Providence between January 15, 1683 and April 1, 1683, at the age of about 80 or 81–his birth year is still in question but believed by most today to be 1602 or 1603.
