News Death Notice

HYLAND, Roger Lee 61, was born on August 31st, 1949. Roger died on July 18th, 2011 from cancer. The cause of his death is not important. What is more meaningful is the mark he left, showing that he passed this way, on what is a much longer journey. The best part of his life was his family. His best friend, partner and confidant was and always will be his wife Lee. They were together 25 years and together they shared many experiences and shared a full life. They were blessed with two children, James and Jamie and two grandchildren, Tyler and Levi. His father Clyde and mother Betty, brother Keith (Norma), sister Gay Eldridge (Randy), several nieces, nephews, one great nephew, close friends Kelly, Keith & "Little" Bill along with his two loyal dogs Alfie and Annie were his rock. They supported him in everything he did and comforted him when needed. His sister Marcia left here before Roger and they are now reunited. Special thank you to caregivers Janette, Sheryl, Terri & Dr. Cass for attending to Roger's needs during the past six months. Roger was an Army veteran. Roger never met a stranger. His trademark was his generosity and helping of others and he did so even in death as he chose anatomical donation of himself to help others. Roger was passionate about cars, car racing, Dale Earnhardt, college football, softball, and travel. Celebrate life not death. Roger will live on if you keep his memory alive. Roger would like everyone to get together and celebrate his life. Roger's service will start at 1 p.m. Saturday July 23rd at the Springfield House Reception Center, 4230 E. National Rd. Springfield, OH with a life celebration ceremony to follow. Pastor Chris D. Wright, Pastor Ryan Ray and Rev. Ken Woode officiating. Roger would prefer you honor his memory by making donations to one of the following noble causes which he also supported: Salvation Army-Project Choice, Honor Flight, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Mike Johnson Scholarship Foundation or Senior Dream Center. Services are being provided by JACKSON LYTLE & LEWIS FUNERAL HOME and condolences may be expressed to the family at www.jacksonlytle.com.
