Lee-RodgerLee Rodger

Memorial services for Lee Rodger will be held Wednesday, Dec. 9, at 7 p.m. at the Center for Spiritual Living, 4801 Spring Valley Road, Suite 115, in Dallas.

Born Dec. 30, 1967, in Anchorage, Alaska, Rodger died recently in Dallas. He will be remembered by family and friends as a loving, caring man who took great pride in his charity work, especially his work with the Texas Gay Rodeo Association. Over the years he had won several titles in TGRA and the International Gay Rodeo Association.

Rodger was preceded in death by his father, Lawrence Merton Rodger, and his younger brother, Brian Martin Rodger. He is survived by his mother, Shirley Frances Rodger; his sister,  Christine Ivy Scheider; his brother-in-law, Daniel Wayner Schneider; and numerous cousins.

The family asks that in lieu of flowers, those wishing to honor Rodger do so by helping continue his tradition of helping pay medical expenses for his sister and brother-in-law.
