Roger Wayne Adamson

October 5, 1946March 31, 2021

Roger W. Adamson was born on October 5, 1946 in Gatesville, Texas and went to be with his Lord and Savior on March 31, 2021 after a courageous battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease). Roger was raised and spent the first 28 years of his life in Killeen. His only time away, during that time, was while serving his country in the U.S. Army from 1966 – 1968, during the Vietnam War. Roger was a proud graduate of Killeen High School – Class of 1965 and continued to attend Roo football games for the entirety of his life. He married the love of his life, Vicky Lisenbe, on December 19, 1970 and together they raised two sons, Scott and Jon. He enjoyed a long and successful career in Sales & Sales Leadership, which allowed him the flexibility to fully engage with his family and church.

Roger was committed to a life of service and found great joy in helping and supporting those around him. He was motivated to be a strong Christian example and due to his sensitive nature, often anticipated the needs of others. In retirement Roger drove a school bus and enjoyed having an impact on young children’s lives. He spoke often about making sure every student experienced a supportive smile and positive attitude. He and Vicky were members of the church plant committee for Hutto Bible Church where Roger was part of the set-up and greeter team. In addition, Roger and Vicky hosted a small group bible study which helped connect families to the gospel of Jesus Christ. In 2014 they relocated to the DFW area to live near their two sons and grandchildren. This move allowed them an opportunity to engage deeper into the lives of their family, where they enjoyed attending school and sporting events. In 2016 they began attending The Well Church – Argyle. Although ALS created tremendous physical limitations, he never allowed it to limit his spiritual enrichment or zest for life.

Roger was proceeded in death by his parents Rueben and Millie Adamson, infant child Tisha Adamson and sister Sharon Johnson. He is survived by his wife of 50 years Vicky Adamson, son Scott Adamson and wife Christina Adamson of Argyle, Texas, son Jon Adamson and wife Christina Adamson of Krugerville, Texas, Grandchildren Nathan, Kayla, Brooke, Emery and Elise Adamson and sister Sandra Smith of Johnson City, Tennessee. He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

No man is an island, entire of itself. each is a part of the continent, a piece of the main...... therefore, do not ask for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee.

Growing up as a cousin, Roger was almost like another brother to my brothers and I. We shared many good times and some bad ones, but we were always there for each other. Rest in Peace, Roger.

I have known Roger since I was 12 years old. He was a good friend to my entire family for nearly 60 years. We had the chance to reconnect a couple of months ago. Vicky was Roger’s voice while we “caught up” about our families’ lives. I am so grateful that we had that chance. Thank you Vicky. Goodbye to you, Roger, and may God Bless and Comfort all your loved ones here on earth until we meet again.

Roger is such a kind and special man. Really an exceptionally warm-hearted, big-hearted and heart-of-gold guy!
He will be terrifically missed by all who have known and loved him and that represents a huge number of people!
I am so grateful to have known him through Vicky, who I worked with for probably 15 or 20
years.
My prayers are with you all.
Much love, Diane Wall
