On early Sunday morning, January 24th, 2021, Father God so fit to enter brother Roger into eternal glory. Roger entered into his rest at one of his nieces’ (Sherry Goodman’s) home in Aynor, SC.
Roger was the living, 7th child of the late Leo Howard Pierce Sr., and the late Elizabeth Jackson Pierce.
He was born on August 29th, 1961 in Marlboro County. He attended different churches, but finally became a member at Grace Baptist Church in Aynor. He attended all the required schools while living in Aynor. Roger was employed many years at various companies until his health started to decline.
Roger was a very loving and kind man to everyone whom he developed a relationship with. He had some unique qualities about himself that was attached to his name, and he acquired a few nicknames on his earthly journey, as well: Murdock and Roger Dodger. He especially loved Gospel music and enjoyed singing along to the old hymns of his youth. He was a man who would show his love however way he saw needed. His heart was full of love, joy, peace, and laughter, along with the wisdom gained along the way. Roger will be unforgotten, terribly missed, and forever loved, always in our hearts and yours. One particular song that he often sung was “Will the Circle Be Unbroken.” Our hearts are just that—BROKEN.
He is preceded in death by two brothers: Leo Howard Pierce Jr., and Joseph Alonzo Lee Pierce.
