Roger Valentine

Donalds - Roger Kenneth Valentine went home to be with his Lord & Savior on March 21, 2024 as a result of a stroke over 2 years ago.


Roger was preceded in death by his father & mother and all 5 of his siblings. Roger is survived by his wife of almost 57 years, Sharon, their 4 children Nathan (Angie), Beth McCall, Paul (Cheryll), and Micah (Brittany), along with 13 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.

Roger was born in New York, but left there at the age of 18 to join the Air Force. During his time in the Air Force he was introduced to the gospel and became a follower of Jesus Christ. After his time in the service he went to a small Bible College in Phoenix, AZ where he met Sharon. They came to SC to finish his education, and from there went to serve the Lord in missions work. They came back to Greenville, SC where Roger continued vocational work in various roles over his career, many of which were with ministry organization. Roger retired from Connie Maxwell Ministries in 2009, but continued to serve in his local church, Honea Path First Baptist. In fact, Roger was active in every church he served in over his lifetime, often serving in church leadership and teaching Sunday School. In addition to these roles, Roger had served as a member of The Gideons and helped with Meals on Wheels. The legacy that Roger leaves of his 80 years of life is one of dedicated service to his community, his Lord, and his family.

The family would like to express their profound appreciation to the team at Traditions Palliative & Hospice, especially aides Ebony & Kareema & nurse Marie, for the tireless and compassionate work they did to serve Roger over the last 2 years. The family would also like to request that in lieu of flowers, any memorials you would like to make be made to Connie Maxwell Ministries, The Gideons, or a charity of your choice.
