My condolences to the Wester family. At Revelation 21:4 Jehovah promises to do away with death forever. We look forward to this beautiful hope that Jehovah God has promised us in the near future. One day soon we will not have to face nor fear our enemy death anymore. May Jehovah be with your family during this difficult time. For more information and encouragement that has helped me through difficult times like this is jw.org where you can find comfort and hope for the future.

Roger Morel Wester

November 30, 1942 – June 18, 2017

Roger Morel Wester was born on November 30, 1942 in Savannah to William Alton and Connie Mae (nee Greene) Wester. He graduated from Savannah High School and worked at Gulfstream Aerospace as a quality control inspector until his retirement in 2004. Morel served in the U.S. Army active duty and National Guard Reserve, retiring in 1994 after 20 years of service.

Morel was a dedicated and humble servant of the Lord, living out his faith in his everyday actions and caring way of relating with everyone he met. He loved to joke and tease, and had a special way of drawing people into his circle with kindness and humor. He was a faithful member of Community Bible Church, best known for his enthusiastic hospitality at Sunday services and his intense love for God and all living things. He had a heart for people and for animals, with his tender spirit and gentle ways.

He is survived by his wife of 38 years, Mildred (nee Swinney); children, Karen Luke (Brick) and Kathy Miller (Joe); stepchildren, Cindy Winter (Scott Selfridge) and Jeff Winter; and brother, Donnie Wester (Lyn). Survivors also include a large and loving extended family including grandchildren, Kayla Peterson (Matthew), Kristin Riddell (Robb), Joshua Miller, Matthew Luke (Emily); and great-grandchildren, Allie Peterson and Noah Riddell. He also leaves behind nieces, Alicia Robison (David) and Ashley Butts (Doug) and great-nieces and nephews, Anna, Tyler and Parker Robison and Jacob, Lillian and Caleb Butts. He will also be greatly missed by his beloved dog babies, Tango and Georgia.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, June 23rd, 11 a.m. at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Chapel, 7200 Hodgson Memorial Drive.  Memorial visitation will be on Thursday, June 22nd from 5-7 p.m. at the funeral home. Inurnment will follow in Forest Lawn Memory Gardens.
