  1. Roger was like a second dad to all of us girls at Buehlers he was a great man. We could always count on him to check in on us at night, walk us to our cars to make sure we were safe, or even just stop by to chat for a bit on those lonely nights. What saddens me more is I was not there to say goodbye. I love you Roger thank you for all the amazing memories ❤️

  2. Roger meant so much to a lot of us, especially the girls, at buehlers. He was very much a protective father figure to us all. He was always there to offer advice and comfort when we needed it. You would never know just by looking at him all the love and care he had to give. To me personally, he was one of the most, if not the most, important person in my life. I could always trust him to be there to listen and help me, no matter the situation. He only ever wanted the best for everyone. It breaks my heart that I never got to tell him that I love him, but hopefully he knew. Goodbye, Roger. I love you, dad.

  3. Roger really was like a second father to me and many of the other girls at Buehler’s, but more than that he was one of my best friends. I could always count on him, he made sure I was okay every single day, and he always made me feel appreciated and seen. He genuinely cared. Even with his hard exterior, he was one of the sweetest men I have met in my life. One of the most hard working, genuine, and selfless people I knew. He was always rooting for me and made me feel like I could accomplish anything I set my mind too. I will forever miss your wisdom, the laughs, the jokes, life lessons, and your endless encouragement and support. I love you Roger… until we meet again. Thank you for everything.

We know you will be missed by your family and many friends, Greg, Tammy,and Scott will all cherish those carefree days of youth playing at Grandpa Morrison’s home on Lear Road, May God’s grace surround you.

  5. I never knew personally of Roger, but was a very close friend of his deceased mom, Jojo, and Roger, his father. Always heard good things about him. He came from loving parents and his momma loved him very much. Rest In Peace Roger Lee and give your mom a hug for me…
