Roger had such a sweet heart and spirit. Having known him since 1975, I knew him to be happy, kind and fun to be around. He never complained even during this past month with pain and rapidly declining health. Although I miss him terribly, it’s a comfort to know that he is with our Lord and Savior. There’s a sweet reunion with his precious wife, Dianna, who passed away in April 2016. Married in 1970, Roger said it was love a first sight; she was 16 and he was 24. One of 12 children, he’s with his family except brother Michael who needs our prayers for peace and comfort. And he’s with his beloved dachshund, Miss Gracie who passed away in Fall of 2020. Heavenly Homegoing, Roger Gene Craft.🙏🏼 We will miss you!❤️
