Roger was a member of Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church. He worked in the oilfield from 1970 until his retirement in 2001, and then as a heavy equipment operator for the City of Brookhaven until 2019. He loved hunting, fishing and horse-trading.

Roger loved his work and helping anyone in need and didn’t expect anything in return, only wanting them to “pay it forward.” He considered his friends as his family. His longtime friends were Odel Ballard and Danny Porter.

Preceding him in death were his father; and daughter, Robin Marie McCaffrey.

Those left to cherish his memory are his wife, Debra K Robbins McCaffrey; mother, Joyce Elaine Cade; daughters, Rebecca R. James and husband, Erick, Rhonda L. Laird, and husband, Robert; four grandchildren, Steven L. Maxie, George M. Maxie, Sarah M. James and Elijah Lee James; brothers, Teddie Joe (T.J.) McCaffrey and wife Patricia, and Randy L. McCaffrey and wife Theresa, and he was also survived by a host of nieces and nephews.
