Son of Clarence Linn Aten and Bertha Florence Montooth Aten. He married Marjorie Maxine Robinson on October 6, 1940 in Kahoka, Missouri. They were married for nearly 60 years, before she passed away on July 26, 2004.

He was also preceded in death by his parents; one grandson, Monty Strader; six brothers, George, Keith, Sloan, Rex, Robert and Richard Aten and two sisters, Mrs. Madlyn Christine and Mrs. Maxine Allison.

He is survived by one son, Larry (Louise) Aten; one daughter, Janet (Richard) Strader; nine grandchildren, Michelle (Gregory) Johnson, Melissa Watkins, Steve (Cassi) Aten, Sheryl (Steve) Sell, Jed (Shanna) Aten, Bill (Lory) Aten, Tom (Jessica) Aten, Helen (Bryan) Terry and Dan Aten; 32 great-grandchildren; 24 great-grandchildren; three sisters-in-law, Betty Aten, Norma Toland and Betty Herche; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Roscoe spent most of his youth on a farm northeast of Macomb. In February 1941, he and his wife moved to the Charles Flack farm five miles north of Macomb, where, except for two years in the mid 1960's, they spent their lives. His greatest 90th birthday wish was to ride a mule, which he did. He farmed all his life beginning with horses as a young man. Horses remained a love for all of his life.
