Obituary message

Roger Walker “Roo” Stephens of Richmond went to meet the Lord on Tuesday, February 26, 2019.

Roo was born, March 6, 1938 in Pulaski, VA. He was preceded in death by his parents, Arthur and Mary; and his wife, Judy.

Left to mourn and cherish his memory are his sisters, Ellen Mitchell, Alice Burgess; his loving daughter Lark Bailey, son-in-law Patrick, (his football watching buddy) and grandchildren Grace and Keeton.

Roo was a Navy man in his youth, and then moved to work for C & O Railroad. After the death of his beloved Judy, he moved to Sitter and Barfoot Veterans Care Center, where he charmed the staff daily. A big thank you to the staff who assisted him at the end of his journey.

The family invites all family and friend for visitation from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, March 1 at his church, Forest Grove Christian Church in Hadensville.  A funeral Service will be held at 11 a.m.  on Saturday March 2, at the church.
