Roger Ferguson

January 20, 1961November 4, 2018

Life Celebration services for Roger Ferguson are scheduled for 2 PM, Thursday, November 8, 2018 at Shady Grove Baptist Church, 4227 Van Deeman St., Bossier City, 71112. Pastor Nick Sorrell will serve as officiant for the service.

Barbara Ingram and Derwood D. Ferguson, Jr., welcomed Roger Quinn into the world on January, 20, 1961 in Columbus, MS. Roger made his living as an auto body and paint technician, but found his life in gathering with his family and in working with his hands. He loved woodworking, and would gift his creations to family and friends. From cutting boards to coasters to hanging flower pots, it seemed that there was not an end to the variety of items he could create. He also REALLY loved Rock and Roll and playing his drums (loudly)— a trait he passed down to his nephew. Mr. Ferguson passed peacefully, surrounded by family on November 4, 2018 at the age of 57.

Preceding Roger in death are his father; two brothers, Stanley and Andy Ferguson; one sister, Beverly Lewis; and two nieces, Tiffany Ferguson and Martha Lewis. Left to cherish his memory are his mother; sister, Nancy Spataro with husband Rickey; brother, Gary Ferguson; and numerous nieces, nephews, other family and good friends.

The family would like to offer a special thank you to Southern Care Hospice for their compassionate care in the last few months.

In Lieu of flowers, the family recommends a donation be made to the American Cancer Society in his honor. www.donate.cancer.org

The perfect next door neighbor. We enjoyed many conversations over the fence about gardening, Panama City Beach, politics, just any and everything. He will be truly missed.

There are so many memories I share with my uncle Rogers but the first that comes to mind is when I told him i joined the Army. A lot of people didn’t really support me, but he was so proud and excited that I joined. He knew I could do it from the beginning and they helped me a lot through basic training. Uncle Rogers was like that with anything, he always supported me. Another memory I always think about with him are with any family gathering. He made it his job to have make everyone laugh. He never failed to put a smile on everyone’s face with just his smile. I love you and miss you so much already, I wish I could’ve seen you one more time but I’m sure that wouldn’t have even been enough. Rest easy Uncle Rogers, until we meet again.

I have known Roger for several years from across the Ocean all the way to Ireland. He was such a lovely friend, one I never met, but he touched my life through times of sickness with his music and humour. I will always remember Roger and his beaming smile. Rest in peace my friend. I shall sorely miss you. Condolences to all his family and friends.
