Roger Lee Lawhorne, 71, of Brookneal passed away Thursday June 24, 2021, after a short bout with cancer.

Roger was born in Lynchburg August 27, 1949, son of the late Earl Frances Lawhorne and Ella Rosalie (Zadie) Lawhorne.
He is also preceded in death by a brother Earl Odell Lawhorne.

Roger was a veteran of the US Navy and served in the Vietnam war. He was a member of Falling River Baptist Church.

He is survived by a brother Kenneth Wayne Lawhorne and wife Tommie, one aunt, nieces, nephews, and cousins. He resided in Heritage Hall Rehabilitation Center in Brookneal and called it his home.

The family would like to thank one humble servant who did not want recognition who stood by him over the years and through life’s ups and downs. Thanks to the staff at Heritage Hall, Roger bragged about many of you, especially the kitchen staff. Thanks to the staff at Lynchburg General Hospital, Roger was only there for a short period of time, but his care was excellent.

A celebration of life will be conducted on Saturday July 3rd at 11:00 at Falling River Baptist Church by Pastor Kenneth Lawhorne and Pastor Brian Hart.

Family will receive friends 1 hour prior to the service.
