Roger was owner and operator of Henderson's Food Center for 30 years where he served the community with his kind-hearted generosity. He continued his love for grocery stores as he became know as the "Collard Man." Roger was a competitive and avid card player, a passionate fisherman, and a dedicated Bingo player. Until his recent declining health, he was an active and faithful member of Northwest Christian Church where he enjoyed fellow-shipping with others who loved the Lord as he did.
