      Roger graduated from Durham High School in 1957. He served in the U.S. Navy from 1957-1962, aboard the U.S.S. Vogelgesang DD-862 from 1958-1961 as an electronics technician. Following his service in the Navy, he worked as a radio communications technician and manager of the Raleigh office of Piedmont Communications Company until his retirement. He was an avid history buff and enjoyed researching his family’s history, as well as studying ancient Egypt. His first love, however, was his wife Vicki as well as his children and grandchildren. A small gathering for family and friends was held at Andrews Valley Chapel in Wilmington, NC on November 17, 2018.
