Roger Lee Gaeckler

            Roger Lee Gaeckler born on May 2, 1947 in Houston, Texas died peacefully Tuesday, October 30, 2018 surrounded by his loved ones, at Methodist Hospital in Houston.

            He grew up in Houston, played football for the winning Falcons at Jones High School. He received his degree in Forestry from Stephen F. Austin State University.

            He is survived by the love of his life who he met at college, his wife of 47 years, Mollie (the city boy and the country girl); sons, whom he loved dearly and who he was so proud of, Troy, and Jody and wife Julie.

            He is preceded in death by his parents, Edward and Joann; and little brother, Randy, who was an Army Ranger; he died in 1971 and Roger missed him deeply.

            He will dearly miss his Tuesday morning Bible Study at Diamond S. He loved to study his Bible. He would stay up all night to read and study because it was quiet and he could visit with his Lord. He is now rejoicing with God!

            A celebration of his life will be held on Thursday, November 8, 2018 at 6 p.m. at Cedar Lane Baptist Church in Cedar Lane, Texas.
