He was born in Birmingham on November 2, 1944. Despite having contracted polio at the age of two, he went on to have a successful career and an exceptional life. He graduated with honors from Hueytown High School in 1963, where he was also the Senior Class President. He then graduated from The University of Alabama and obtained his law degree from Cumberland School of Law in 1974. He dedicated his life in a career to public service, serving as an Assistant District Attorney, District Court Judge, and Circuit Court Judge until he retired in 1997.

Roger worked hard for his family, a tireless provider who always put them first. As a judge, he was approachable and kind while being just and fair. He loved the law, but above all loved helping others. To know Roger was to know strong character, honesty, integrity and to always feel welcomed. He brought so much joy and laughter to those who knew him and heard his stories. He will be greatly missed and forever remembered.
