Roger N. Trendowski was born on the lake in Amber, New York. For many years, his parents, Stanley and Ethel Trendowski, operated a well-known bait shop and vegetable stand located at the corner of Oak Hill Road and Otisco Valley Road. Even though he moved away from the lake in his teens to attend college and work, he always felt drawn to the area of his roots. In 1992 he and his wife, Ginna, and three children, Jennifer, Carissa, and Lindsay, built a small cottage on part of the original Wheeler estate lake shore near his parents' house. His brother, Teal, and five aunts and uncles all have neighboring properties on Wheeler Drive.
