Galley Roger Gough Sr.

June 16, 1942July 22, 2020

Galley Roger Gough Sr., 78, of Culpeper, VA, passed peacefully on July 22, 2020 at his residence. He was born June 16, 1942, one of twelve children to the late Bernard and Daisy Bragg Gough.

Roger could always be found in his shop mechanicing on a lawn mower or his neighbors’ tractor. Hunting, fishing, and coin collecting were favorite past times. Spending time with family and grandchildren was important, whether it was just a cook-out or yearly vacations to Emerald Isle N.C. or Pigeon Ford Tennessee. Roger retired from Payne’s Hay and Straw after dedicating 30 years of employment to them.

He is survived by his loving wife of 53 years Mary Woodard Gough; two children, Roger Gough Jr. (Melissa), Paige Wise (Jeff); six grandchildren, Jacob, Maggie, Amanda, Marissa, Makayla, Zeb; eight great-grandchildren; siblings Fred Gough, Curtis Gough and Beatrice Gough; and his best friend, Lee Brown.

Roger will be dearly missed but his memory will live on in the hearts of his family and friends.

All services for Roger were private. Gentlemen serving as pall bearers were Roger Gough, Jr., Jeff Wise, Jacob Wise, Zeb Gough, Junior Brown and Mike Bajek.

Fond memories and condolences may be shared with the Gough family through clore-english.com. The Gough family has entrusted Clore-English Funeral Home with these arrangements.

I remember Uncle Roger being a quiet, gentle, hard working man. He would make me and mama (Nokie) giggle while teasing us about something silly!

A young soul taken too soon, may he rest in peace and fly with the angels.

Love and hugs to Aunt Mary, Jr., Paige and family.

Roger was such a friendly nice gentleman. He used to come in our store at least once or twice a day years ago. That was Bailey’s Store in Brandy Station.
I don’t believe I remember a time when he did not have a smile on his face.
Thoughts & Prayers with the Family.
