RIP Roger

In our thoughts and prayers

I knew Roger from Laurel Hill School. He excelled in basketball and baseball. He was good in both sports. He also was the guy nobody wanted to fight because they were afraid of coming out on the losing end. I went one summer to basketball camp with Roger. The last time I saw him was at Bobby Joe 's funeral. We talked and he told where he lived and invited me to come see him. It is good to hear of his love for family and his faith in the Lord. God bless his family.

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived. Prayers for the entire family!


So sorry for the family's loss. Roger will never know pain or suffering anymore....God has him. Prayers for the family.

In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
