Roger Walker “Roo” Stephens

Mar 06, 1938 to Feb 26, 2019

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.

    Ellen, Alice and family, The last times we saw you and Roger was at the funerals of Arthur and Mary. It was like being transported back to the 1940s and 50s. Your family was well-represented at the funerals of my parents. Roger was there for both. It was such fun growing up across Belleville Road from all of you Stephens and the other notable and friendly families in our neighborhood. I remember “Kick the Can” and softball in the street and riding the street car across town to the Roanoke Red Sox baseball games. Who can forget skating and basketball games in the Garland’s driveway next door? Mary was the best shooter of all. Incidentally, Bob Garland died March 3rd, just five days after Roger. Bob Edwards is the one who let me know of Roger’s death.

    Please know that Noel and I send our sympathy and love to all of you in Roger’s family.

    Jim and Noel
