Roger was a member of Dallas Baptist Church and had faith that could move mountains. He loved being in the outdoors whether it was camping, fishing, or working in the yard. He was such a hard worker and everyone that knew him knows that he was just a good man. He was an auto mechanic for many years after being an auto mechanic instructor at CCC&TI. He worked as the manager for Baton Hardware, in Cajahs Mountain for a few years before finally retiring and enjoying life with Momma Gloria. They enjoyed their times camping and traveling to the beach and mountains. He is best remembered for just “piddling” and tinkering in the garage. He will be missed from the world but has already reunited with the loved ones gone on before him especially his first wife Loretta M Hartzog. He also served in the United States Army.
