To honor Roger's request no funeral services will be held.

Roger was born March 25, 1958 in Sanford Fla. to Aubrey Gene Chandler and Patricia Allen Chandler.

His early years were in Florida, where he started his education until 1969, when the family returned to Lexington and Rocky entered schools here; attending Dunbar, and Lexington Middle School, before deciding to start his working career. He worked at Dixie Furniture, Jones Door Company in Mocksville, and began his career in construction, remodeling Marriott Hotels, traveling to New York, Maryland, and Florida before his health forced him to retire.
