Roger Hampton Cissel, a retired real estate salesman and antiques collector, died Sunday of complications from Parkinson's disease at the Vantage House Retirement Community in Columbia. He was 93, and formerly resided in Edmondson Village and Catonsville.

Born in Glenelg, he attended the old Clarksville public school before his 1932 graduation from what was then Western Maryland College.

He worked for the old William S. Cole & Sons wholesale hardware company on South Charles Street before becoming business manager for a Frostie Root Beer bottling plant in Hampden.

He retired in the late 1980s from V.W. Palladi, a Baltimore National Pike real estate business where he had sold homes for many years.

Mr. Cissel collected furniture and clocks, and enjoyed researching family history.

His wife of 15 years, the former Emily Ripley Gaver, died in 1994.

Services will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at Slack Funeral Home, 3871 Old Columbia Pike, Ellicott City.

Survivors include three stepsons, Wallace P. Gaver of Woodbridge, Va., David Gaver of New Market and Joel E. Gaver of Union Bridge; and seven nephews and five nieces.
