He was employed with the South Carolina Department of Corrections where he retired after twenty-five plus years of service as a Lieutenant.
Roger was baptized at Mount Zion Baptist Church in Laurens at an early age. He had an awesome journey with Christ. His faith, commitment, and loyalty afforded him the appointment of Deacon at Woodson Chapel Baptist Church in Union, SC. He took great pride in his ordination and rendered service to the church, giving of his time, talents, and treasures. Roger was a bible scholar who enjoyed teaching the word to any and everyone he met. He was often called upon for his advice. He enjoyed the meeting before the meeting and the meeting after the meeting where he would rightly divide the word of God to provide the essence and application of the word.
His legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of everyone he interacted with as well as those whose lives he touched but never met.
The family will receive friends at the home and at the home of his daughter. Arrangements are with Community Mortuary, Inc., 361 Meansville Road, Union, SC.
