Roger was born on March 19, 1936 in Wayne County, Mississippi to the late Velma McClain West and Lawrence Coleman West and went home to be with his Lord on March 7, 2020 in Haynesville. His family later moved to Haynesville, where he graduated from Haynesville High School in 1955. He attended SAGU and graduated with an Associate’s degree in Business. He later went to work for Sears as a credit manager for nine years and then went to work for Halliburton, serving 15 years before his retirement. He then went to work for David Wade Correctional Center, from where he retired for the second time after 21 years of service.
He was a charter member of the NLPC, which he was very proud of. He was always enthusiastic about the Haynesville Fair and fair’s chicken showings. He was always willing to help ensure the shows got off without a hitch. He loved his chickens, LOL, almost as much as his family and people in general.
He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife of 57 years, Doris June West and one sister, Ruth Clark.
Survivors include; three sons, Mike West and wife Kathy, Dean West, and Dale West and wife Christina; five grandchildren, David, Susan, Jerimiah, Austin and Ashlyn; six great grandchildren, Mia, Griffen, Pipper, Annabella, Chloe and Damon.
